firmware: dmi: handle missing DMI data gracefully

Currently, when booting a kernel with DMI support on a platform that has
no DMI tables, the following output is emitted into the kernel log:

  [    0.128818] DMI not present or invalid.
  [    1.306659] dmi: Firmware registration failed.
  [    2.908681] dmi-sysfs: dmi entry is absent.

The first one is a pr_info(), but the subsequent ones are pr_err()s that
complain about a condition that is not really an error to begin with.

So let's clean this up, and give up silently if dma_available is not set.
