    If it used to work and now it doesn't, that's probably a bug, though you
    might be able to work around it with some direct settings.

    What hardware is involved? 'cat /proc/ipmi/0/params' on a working
    kernel would be handy. You can use that information to hot-add the BMC,
    that should be documented in Documentation/IPMI.txt
