SubjectRe: [Openipmi-developer] [PATCH] ipmi: fix BT reset for a while when cmd timeout
I don't really understand the error that is happening.  I see that it
continues to time out, but I don't know why. If you can get in to this
situation here, it makes me worried that there is some other issue.
issuing the warm reset, even if the command is not supported, should be
harmless. Maybe the warm reset actually happens and it takes longer
than 5 seconds?

The following patch is certainly not the right fix. I would actually
prefer to just remove the reset operation from the driver, but I'd
really like to fix the fundamental issue. To me this looks like a bug
in the BMC.

I'm copying Rocky Craig, who wrote this state machine.
