could be more forgiving of bad smbios tables
On Lenovo x3650 and x3550 M5s (at least), the last item in the smbios table runs past the end of the table, which causes smbios_bufopen to fail, setting the error to ESMB_CORRUPT. The last item is some vendor-specific thing that no one needs to look at, so it seems a bit unnecessary to deem the entire table corrupt as a result.
For comparison, Linux just ignores the item in this case, and OpenBSD doesn't even look at it, as it stops scanning the table when it finds the entry it wants.
