Hi Cress,
This bug is already fixed in the CVS by Bala. Thanks for looking into it.

BTW, I am upset at the way Intel is taking platform management
forward.  Intel was the one to promote IPMI and now Intel is moving to a
proprietary IAMT implementation. Till now, I could not get the specs
for AMT without NDA. I was offered to receive SDK source but with NDA
and I refused.

AMD, HP, DELL, SUN, IBM and the rest of the world supports IPMI now.
Even Tyan Bensley platforms supports IAMT. Only the Intel motherboards don't.

Can you throw us some light on this issue and help us with specs if possible?
