Subject[patch] Version 2 of the Linux IPMI driver
I've cleaned a few things up and fixed some minor bugs.  The only big 
change is renaming the "unused" address to the "system interface"
address (which makes a heck of a lot more sense). I'm working on
userland tools that will tie in to this and to LAN/ICMB stuff, and there
I saw the need for the name. I still haven't tested interrupt-driven
operation, but that's really a rather minor concern since almost no
boards support it and the driver will work without it.

You can get the patch on my web page at,
relative to 2.5.33 or 2.4.19. The patch is fairly self-contained, so it
should be easy to port to other kernel versions.

The lanana guy is not available for a while, so I'm not getting a device
number in the near future, but I think it's ready for the 2.5 release.
Does this need more time, or is it ready for inclusion?
