Comment 5 Peter Martuccelli 2007-07-11 16:55:24 UTC

RHEL 5.1 includes an update of the IPMI driver set to include the upstream
changes as of, (with some patches pulled in from 2.6.22-rc4).  Specific
changes include the following:

[] Fix unitialized data bug in ipmi_si_intf
[] Do not start kipmid if driver supports interrupts
[] Allow users to override the kernel daemon enable, (force_kipmid)
[] Per channel command registration
[] Remove interface number limits, (MAX_IPMI_INTERFACES is no longer used)
[] Support for hot system interface remove
[] Addition of maintenance mode to support firmware updates
[] Add poweroff support for the pigeonpoint IPMC
[] Fixed BT subdriver to survive long timeouts
[] Addition of pci_remove handling for proper cleanup on hot remove
[] Misc changes, pci_register_driver conversion, set all return codes to
   negative valuse, resolve PROC_FS warnings, addition of a poll delay to 
   timeout commands, remove static allocations initialized to 0, increase KCS 
   message size to IPMI_MAX_MSG_SIZE, set the proper addr ype, (IO/MEM), in
   the ACPI init code.

New module parameters are discussed, outlined, in Documentation/IPMI.txt.
