| I've emailed you in the past about ipmi & powerman issues. We
| have a problem with our HP DL145 G1's running your freeipmi
| software. Strangely enough, when we updated from BIOS firmware 4.06
| to 4.07, freeipmi stopped working. The error is exactly like that
| (including ipmi-locate output) previously reported by Rene Salmon of
| Tulane U.
| below for your response:
| Hey Rene,
| Thanks. That verifies atleast why it's failing.
| /* At this point we only support SYSTEM_IO, i.e. inb/outb style IO.
| If we cant find the bass address, we better exit. -- Anand Babu */
| if (dev->io.inband.locate_info.addr_space_id !=
| errno = ENODEV;
| return (-1);
| The IBM's use memory mapped io. This is the first machine (that
| I've seen) with memory mapped rather than port based i/o for in-band
| A.B., Bala I'll leave this to you to follow up on. Needless to say,
| this needs to be fixed. I think logically it shouldn't be too hard
| to add? Just need to map some INB/OUTB calls into read/writes? I
| could give it a shot, but I lack a machine to test on.
| We would like to know if you are still in the process of fixing this
| problem or if the fix has already been made.
| Thanks for your help. Other than this current problem, we have had
| verygood luck with the stability of freeipmi and are quite pleased.

Rene's IBM system had a bug. SMBIOS incorrectly reported KCS interface
as memory-mapped, but it was I/O mapped actually. Also their KCS
interface was not IPMI compliant. Only few commands worked.
User can override the ipmi-locate driver and pass driver details
manually through command line arguments.
Bala, please post examples for driver arguments usage.
