This is a long delayed patch set, but I think I have things reworked
to make Igor happy with the way ACPI and SMBIOS work.  This is more
consistent with the way most other things work, anyway.  It did
require adding stubs for systems without IPMI.

The first nine patches are unchanged.

The IPMI firmware configuration storage now holds the firmware information
in a data structure and lets it be iterated.

SMBIOS and ACPI build the tables with their existing building
functions and call out to the IPMI one (or the stub) when the time
comes.  This required pulling some code out of smbios.c into an
include file and making some things global, as IPMI has to be

The BIOS table tests were also modified since the ACPI info is
now in the existing SSDT.

I've also added a force-off function for external BMCs; an external
BMC needs a way to do a hard power-off of the system if the soft
power offs fail.

Thanks all!
