Description

One of the parts of the SMBIOS 3.2 spec is that vendors are supposed to supply tables of the same version regardless of SMBIOS entry point. However, we've seen experimental evidence that this is not the case. As such we should always look for both the 32-bit and 64-bit entry points and take the one that has the largest version when we haven't received a specific version from the system boot loader.
