RE: ipmiutil
The use case model for ipmiutil assumes that the customer wants the
management stuff to take place in discrete steps, and then get out of
the way for the production data traffic to use all of the available
capacity.  This lends itself to utilities rather than services.
Ipmiutil does utilize any of several IPMI drivers if they are present.

RE: multi-threading with IPMI
The driver being used is responsible for handling multiple threads or
processes doing the IPMI management functions.  If direct user-space
I/Os are being used, then the assumption is either: 
1) only one management app at a time, or
2) homogenous management apps all using the same user-space library to
handle the multi-threading.

Hi everyone,

Just need a quick confirmation regarding multithreaded applications and 
multiple IPMI clients:

- FreeIPMI is thread safe, as is OpenIPMI
- ipmiutil is not thread safe

Thanks, Andrew
