Subject: [PATCH] fix DMI for EFI

DMI tables are loaded by EFI, so the dmi calls must happen after 
efi_init() and not before. Currently Apple hardware uses DMI to 
determine the framebuffer mappings for efifb. Without DMI working you 
also have no video on MacBook Pro. This patch resolves the DMI issue for 
EFI hardware (DMI is now properly detected at boot), and additionally 
efifb now loads on Apple hardware (i.e. video works).
