Subject[PATCH] ipmi: Remove ACPI SPMI probing from the SSIF (I2C) driver
Date
From: Corey Minyard <cminyard@mvista.com>

The IPMI spec states:

The purpose of the SPMI Table is to provide a mechanism that can
be used by the OSPM (an ACPI term for “OS Operating System-directed
configuration and Power Management” essentially meaning an ACPI-aware
OS or OS loader) very early in the boot process, e.g., before the
ability to execute ACPI control methods in the OS is available.

When we are probing IPMI in Linux, ACPI control methods are available,
so we shouldn't be probing using SPMI. It could cause some confusion
during the probing process.

Jiandi, this just yanks out the SPMI code. Your platform
should have an ACPI control method in it's namespace specifying the
IPMI interface. If it doesn't, that's a bug in your platform and
really needs to be fixed. Finding IPMI devices with SMBIOS tables
is kind of risky since there is no real way to know which I2C bus
has the IPMI device if your system has more than one I2C bus. With
an ACPI control method, the IPMI control method will be inside the
I2C bus control method, so it will be unambiguous.
