SubjectRe: IPMI
Does this work, or would you like more detail?

config IPMI_HANDLER
tristate 'IPMI top-level message handler'
help
This enables the central IPMI message handler, required for IPMI
to work. Note that you must have this enabled to enable any
other IPMI things. IPMI is a standard for managing sensors
(temperature, voltage, etc.) in a system. If you don't know
what it is, your system probably doesn't have it and you can
ignore this option. See Documentation/IPMI.txt for more
details on the driver.
