Description

Currently the common smbios routines have a notion of an encoded library version. However, it doesn't actually honor that in some of the structure bzeroing that it does, thus creating implicit flag days for all consumers. Instead, as part of the process to bring things library to a more stable interface, we should instead make sure to honor the block comment in the library and only zero things out appropriately based on the library version.
