Description of problem:
Heres Dell's rationale for this change:
Our OpenManage software stack needs to be able to test for the version
number of the driver, to know if it's sufficient for their use, or not. To that end, I need one more patch applied from my patchset, which changes
the version number from "v35" to "35.4".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RHEL3 kernel
2.watch kernel boot for IPMI version number
Actual Results: version stated as v.35
Expected Results: version stated as v.35.4
Note that the new version will be "35.4" (without the "v") and that the
kernel version this problem was reported on should be 2.4.21-35.EL.
The patch to resolve this is in bug 165467 comment #22.
This BZ still needs PM and QA acks.
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this afternoon (in kernel version 2.4.21-36.EL).
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
