SubjectRe: [PATCH][resubmit] HP iLO driver

That all sounds like stuff which should be in sys or proc. That would
also give the simple read/write interfaces people want and make it
scriptable without random HP tools that may cease to be available some
day in the future.

As to supporting old software, well HP decided not to submit the original
driver so HP committed to a non upstream API. Thats a hole HP dug and
despite the fact people are always warned about it have now fallen down.
