This is a little strange, nobody had reported this before.  Can you
reproduce this
at will, or was it a one-time thing?

Does the IPMI driver always take this long to issue that error, even if
you are not
entering sleep state?

And it started with 4.14, and didn't occur before then, right?

There's a bug in the PCI utils database, I submitted a report a while
ago.  This is
a KCS, not a SMIC interface.

It looks like the driver is trying to detect that there is a device out
there and
there is something that kind of works, but doesn't work completely. The
specific code was all split out into separate files in 4.14.  It is
possible the
detection code got messed up in the process.  Nothing jumps out looking at
the code differences, and I know it works on some PCI machines.

Assuming this is reproducible, can you send the the output of a pre-4.14
kernel?  If that doesn't make it obvious I may have to have access to the
machine itself.
