This needs a cast, else you'll get a warning:

	slot->dev.name = (char *)&slot[1];

Also, when I was playing with your patchset, I noticed that you
should probably add this hunk too:

This needs to be a const struct dmi_device, else you get a
warning.

Whitespace seems messed up here?

After a discussion on irc, some folks thought that changing the
name of this attribute to 'label' would be a much better name
than smbiosname.
