linux-hardware.org is intended here as an identifier of the projects, not an
URL. The DMI decode database lives here:

https://github.com/linuxhw/DMI.git

But I don't believe that adding the exact URL in the comment is important,
esp. since that may change over time.

Because sizeof(enum) != sizeof(void *) so then the compiler will
complain. Where as sizeof(long) == sizeof(void *)

No I was not planning on this and it seems overkill for just a single
exported symbol.
