SubjectIPMI driver version 18 release
I found a few stupid bugs in the IPMI driver dealing with certain error
cases, and this also contains the documentation updates that I have not
sent to Linus enough times to be included yet :-).

The 2.5 version is attached. The 2.4 version is at:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/openipmi/

+The Intelligent Platform Management Interface, or IPMI, is a
+standard for controlling intelligent devices that monitor a system.
+It provides for dynamic discovery of sensors in the system and the
+ability to monitor the sensors and be informed when the sensor's
+values change or go outside certain boundaries. It also has a
+standardized database for field-replacable units (FRUs) and a watchdog
+timer.
+
+To use this, you need an interface to an IPMI controller in your
+system (called a Baseboard Management Controller, or BMC) and
+management software that can use the IPMI system.

This document describes how to use the IPMI driver for Linux. If you
are not familiar with IPMI itself, see the web site at
http://www.intel.com/design/servers/ipmi/index.htm. IPMI is a big
