dmi-id: fix for __you_cannot_kmalloc_that_much failure
gcc 3.2 has a hard time coping with the code in dmi_id_init(): drivers/built-in.o(.init.text+0x789e): In function `dmi_id_init': : undefined reference to `__you_cannot_kmalloc_that_much' make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1 Moving half of the code to a separate function seems to help. This is a no-op for gcc 4.1 which will successfully inline the code anyway.
