This series includes various patches to allow more flexibility as to where
the data for SMBIOS tables comes from:

- introduces some standard sysinfo options as a source, e.g. to read
   strapping pins to determine the board revision
- allows the U-Boot version number to be included
- allows the version number to be provided programmatically, e.g. to
   support the build system adding information after U-Boot is built

Documentation is added for how to obtain version information.

The code is also refactored a little to make it easier to maintain.
