Just a comment:
Here we only check the first smcd device to determine whether we support v2.
Which is ok, for today's platform firmware ISM devices, as they are always the same version.

When you add virtual ISM devices (loopback-ism, virtio-ism) then this needs to be changed.
IMO the logic then needs to be "if all smcd devices support v2,
then smc_ism_v2_capable = true;
else smc_ism_v2_capable = false;"

I don't know if you would like to change that now in this patch, or later when
you add when you add the support for loopback.
