Conceptually there's big overlap between SMBIOS and fwcfg, as they are
both data tables exposed by firmware at well defined location/format.

Currently we have use SMBIOS via 

  <sysinfo type='smbios'>
    ...SMBIOS info...

It feels sensible to use that "type" attribute

  <sysinfo type='fwcfg'>
     ...fwcfg info...
