But do we also need to patch src/util/sysinfo.c, which makes callouts to
dmidecode(1)? That is, if libsmbios is arch-specific, then I imagine
that so is dmidecode, and do we gracefully handle dmidecode failures in
that case?

You're right. dmidecode is arch-specific as well. Right now we just fail in running it. Is it enough or should that be enclosed in conditional compilation as well?
