Hi Al,

Thank you for your impressive responsiveness.

This new configure option is very appropriate since we won't do IPMI
over LAN at all. I have downloaded 0.7.11.beta1, and it cross-builds
fine, thanks!

Some patch for doing in-band only (ipmi_ssif_cmd_api_ipmb) will follow, 
but we will have first to discuss the best way to turn the Linux kernel 
into an I2C multi-master with slave receive handling. If anyone is 
interested, please LMK. I'll start a new thread next week.
