+SMBIOS tables
+-------------
+
+To generate SMBIOS tables in U-Boot, for use by the OS, enable the
+CONFIG_GENERATE_SMBIOS_TABLE option. The easiest way to provide the values to

+x86 board driver
+================
+
+This driver allows providing board-specific features such as power control
+GPIOs. In addition, the SMBIOS values can be specified in the device tree,
+as below:
+
+An optional 'smbios' subnode can be used to provide these properties.
+
+Optional properties:
+  - manufacturer: Product manufacturer for system / baseboard
+  - product:      Product name
+  - version:      Product version string
+  - serial:       Serial number for system (note that this can be overridden by
+                      the serial# environment variable)
+  - sku:          Product SKU (Stock-Keeping Unit)
+  - family:       Product family
+  - asset-tag:    Asset tag for the motherboard, sometimes used in organisations
+                      to track devices
+
+
+Example:
+
+	board {
+		compatible = "google,coral";
+
+		smbios {
+			manufacturer = "Google";
+			product = "Coral";
+			version = "rev2";
+			serial = "123456789";
+			sku = "sku3";
+			family = "Google_Coral";
+			asset-tag = "ABC123";
+		};
+	};
