SubjectRe: [2.5 patch] fix ipmi_devintf.c compilation
Thank you for the quick heads-up.

Linus, I have attached a patch (with some documentation updates and
another minor fix, too). Please apply for the next release.

Thanks,

-Corey

+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
