    Implement python-dmidecode/dmidecode as alternative for kernel DMI

    dagwieers committed Mar 21, 2013
    This implementation falls back to python-dmidecode (RHEL5.5+) if the kernel as no DMI support. Alternatively, if python-dmidecode is missing, we attempt to use the dmidecode binary (for RHEL5.4 and older) before giving up.
    
    This fixes #376 and #1657 and also helps @lwade on RHEL5.5+.
