[dmidecode] Adding -s bios-revision & -s firmware-revision support

I faced a situation where some vendors like HPe encodes the release
version of the bios into the bios_revision field.

Dmidecode only exports the bios-version which is not relevant here. So
I simply added a new entry of the -s option to expose this.

I performed the same operation for the firmware_revision which helps
extraction the BMC version of the server.

Both are useful when tracking firmware versions across an infrastructure.

Please find the two patches attached,
