Description of problem:
The openipmi drivers (ipmi_si_drv, ipmi_devintf, etc) are missing compat_ioctl's for x86_64 mode. This means that 32-bit utilities will not work on the 64 bit kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install x86_64 kernel
2.Install ipmi_si_drv, ipmi_devintf drivers
3.Ipmitool will not work
Created attachment 112495 [details]
Patch for ipmi_devintf.c
Patches drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_devintf.c to provide 32-bit ioctl's on 64-bit
kernel. Patch is from RHEL4 gold.
Dell agrees that this is a U2 MUSTFIX. Amit: please add to your list.
Removing RHEL3 IT_74119 reference from this bug since it's a RHEL4 BUG.
Dell considers this a MUSTFIX bug per Amit's......

IT 71661 has the patch to resolve this for RHEL4.
Changing to reflect that IT 71661 is the proper IT for this, and closing IT_74561
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 138592 ***
Jason, I don't see how this can be a duplicate of 138592. They may have the
same resolution (an updated ipmi driver set), but they're two different
problems with the same driver from what I can tell.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
