Need ability to read dmidecode

We need the ability to run dmidecode to gain insight into the hardware. However, it appears that this was removed from hardware_observe in this commit.

Can this be reinstated somehow?

shipping and executing dmidecode from a snap should still be possible and hardware-observe should give you access to what dmidecode wants to read …

note that the commit simply removes the execution ability of dmidecode directly from /usr/sbin (because we do not ship it in any base snap anymore)

what is the exact error you get ?

Thanks, @ogra. Let us do a bit more investigation and revert.

My bad - this can be closed. It works fine.
