bmc-config and the other compatibility scripts seem to let the shell mangle
their parameters before passing them to ipmi-config.

address@hidden:~# ls
address@hidden:~# bmc-config -g '*' -o
invalid category 'bmc-core.conf' specified

(yeah, I was attempting to make a backup of all setting from all

This is because of the rather convoluted way that bmc-config patches the
--category=core option into the command line.  A much simpler
not suffering from the same problem would be:

exec @CONFIGSBINDIR@/ipmi-config --category=core "$@"
