I think the following information should be sent from UEFI: CPU 
(information in SMBIOS type 4)), Memory, PCIE, Storage (SSD/NVMe, HDD, 
...) and firmware information (information in SMBIOS Type 0).

I see in some hardware designs, there are I2C connections from BMC to 
DIMM SPD and PCIE slots. I wonder if we can have alternative way to read 
DIMM SPD and PCIE devices information.
