Bug Description

Currently the OEM vendor is being pulled from /sys/class/dmi/id/chassis_vendor and not /sys/class/dmi/id/sys_vendor which is the correct source. sys_vendor is pulled from type 1 and contains the correct SMBIOS OEM values.

  * Use sys_vendor to determine vendor (LP: #1765400)
    After a discussion with Entroware, the SMBIOS spec infer that we should
    prefer sys_vendor to chassis_vendor for collecting Vendor information.
    Use that field and update tests thus.
    Thanks to Michael Wilson for pointing it out.
