Hmmmm ... I'm wondering if it's complaining that the channel number is
0.  Lets try a trick.  Can you reorder your alert_policy_2 config to
list "channel number" first in the Alert_Policy_2 block?  In general,
try re-ordering them around and see if it helps (from your debug I
assume you had tried to config only Alert_Policy_2 at the time).

If that is the issue, I can add a workaround for your motherboard.  The
core issue (which I've hit with multiple vendors) is that it is possible
for the default config on the motherboard to be an "illegal" config.  So
when the user tries to change only 1 sub-field for that area, how are
they supposed to know that a part they aren't interested is configured


P.S.  If moving them fields around makes it work, PLMK what fields and
then PLMK the vendor and motherboard, so I can document it.
