Hi hpa, 

I have added a new interface to check for a string in the product serial
information. And now i use this new interface to detect VMware.

This does not touch the dmi_name_in_vendors function, so the original
patch on this thread should be ignored.

Also please note that this new patch needs to be applied on top of the
hypervisor detection patch. 
 
Thanks,
Alok

DMI, check for the string in product serial key.

From: Alok N Kataria <akataria@...are.com>

In some user configured cases, VMware may choose not to put VMware specific DMI
information, but the product serial key is always there and is VMware specific.
Add a interface to check the serial key, and use this new interface when
checking for VMware specific string in the DMI information.
