I have proposed a start up script upstream to can use these features in ipmitool to set the system's hostname, OS string and get the BMC's IP and expose it in a /run/bmc-info file.

I have a systemd unit for F18 that I am testing with.

It would be possible to pull the start-up script into ipmitool as well after upstream acceptance?
