When tool fails to probe IPMI devices, I thought of displaying examples of
calling the tool with appropriate default values.  Anyway I'm completely
OK with your changes.

I would like to add --defaults option to ipmi-locate and the tool will
display default values when this option is passed.  Just let me know your

But for library probing, I feel it must still be there.

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.
