Issue 372: Show Motherboard Model in BDMESG

Reported by Niresh12495, May 11, 2014

Clover Bootloader can show Motherboard model in bdmesg.
showing board information is very useful for hackintoshers & 
specially Developers like me

What you mean?

A custom flag for smbios?
PLS provide a snippet example of bdmesg.

Here is the attached bdmesg file

I think is possible.
NOT A PRIORITY RIGHT NOW.

We can store the real board name dumped from the DMI before
it is loaded and replaced into memory for the SMBIOS patcher...
if I'm not wrong that value is stored in the table type 1.

Would be also a nice "trick" combined with a custom Extra 
folder.

Standard: /Extra/ all the standard stuff generic
Custom :  /Extra/board_name/ all the custom stuff

In this way will be possible use the same Usb boot stick with 
different board

it's only a idea for now.
