debug warnings: print the DMI board info name in a WARN/WARN_ON
Impact: extend WARN_ON() output with DMI_PRODUCT_NAME It's very useful for many low level WARN_ON's to find out which motherboard has the broken BIOS etc... this patch adds a printk to the WARN_ON code for this. On architectures without DMI, gcc should optimize the code out. Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
