The hp-OpenIPMI device driver is a derivative work of the IPMI device driver that ships with the standard Linux kernel. This driver has been enhanced to include bug fixes in addition to supporting a PCI Base Management Controller (BMC) such as provided by the HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO 2) management controller. The file, /opt/hp/hp-OpenIPMI/IPMI.txt, is also a derivative of the Documentation/IPMI.txt file included with the standard Linux kernel. This file has been enhanced to document the additional parameters that may be passed to the ipmi_si.ko driver. The hp-OpenIPMI device driver enhancements are expected to be incorporated into the OpenIPMI device driver (www.openipmi.org) and subsequently, the standard Linux kernel. This driver may be used with other applications in addition to the HP Advanced System Management XL (hpasmxl) application.
