There is a Documentation/IPMI.txt, which would serve as an excellent
example of how _not_ to write a documentation file, should you ever
decide to write a "Rusty's Unreliable Guide to Writing Kernel
Documentation" and need an example to pillory. I quote:

Maybe it can't all be covered here, but some basic explanation of what
IPMI is and does is essential, even if just so that people who don't
need IPMI can work that out.
