I'm are aware of this message. However, I don't see it mentioned in the ACPI spec that the size of the ACPI table (which is specified in the global ACPI header) must be exactly the size of all ACPI tables. And I don't know any which which is complaining about this. dmidecode is might be a bit too pedantic.
