I decided to share my tools I use for generating the Mac information (from the .ioreg files)
This package contains 3 tools for decoding data.

-> iasl
You know this one, allows decoding (and coding) of AML data.
iasl -d <something>.aml
iasl -tc <something>.dsl

-> dmidecode
This one allows decoding of SMBIOS tables.
dmidecode --from-smbios <something>.bin

-> edid-decode
This one allows decoding of EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) binaries.
edid-decode <something>.bin


EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to also put gfxutil in the zip.
You can get this tool from EFIStudio.app (right click, show contents, Contents, Resources, it's there ;))
