i2c/eeprom: Hide Sony Vaio serial numbers
patch 0f2cbd38aa377e30df3b7602abed69464d1970aa in mainline. The sysfs interface to DMI data takes care to not make the system serial number and UUID world-readable, presumably due to privacy concerns. For consistency, we should not let the eeprom driver export these same strings to the world on Sony Vaio laptops. Instead, only make them readable by root, as we already do for BIOS passwords.
