How would this be an issue?  If the IPMI kernel module is loaded,
libfreeipmi uses it.  Otherwise it moves on into the freeipmi based

ipmi-locate should be able to probe drivers even IPMI kernel modules
are loaded. You are right in the sense, GNU FreeIPMI should be make
use of kernel drivers if they loaded in the first place. In this
particular case, we are patching the KCS and SMIC inband user-space
drivers to use /dev/port interface on SPARC architecture. To make sure
the patched driver gets control, we should either rmmod the kernel
modules or specify --driver-type=KCS|SMIC to the command line tools.
