Hi Bala,

To me, it makes sense to remove 'defaults' from the tool ipmi-locate.
But for library probing, I feel it must still be there.  

If there manufacturer offers no inband information for IPMI (through
smbios, dmi, or pci), then at the bare minimum you can try the IPMI
defaults.  If you don't assume the IPMI defaults, then do you assume the
user must also input the address/registerspacing/etc. into the inband
tools?  Otherwise probing will always fail.

I've reverted this change, because I have a machine which has no probing
information.  It simply implements the IPMI defaults.
