  6        tristate 'IPMI top-level message handler'
  7        depends on HAS_IOMEM
  8        help
  9          This enables the central IPMI message handler, required for IPMI
 10          to work.
 11 
 12          IPMI is a standard for managing sensors (temperature,
 13          voltage, etc.) in a system.
 14 
 15          See <file:Documentation/IPMI.txt> for more details on the driver.
 16 
 17          If unsure, say N.

 21 config IPMI_PANIC_EVENT
 22        bool 'Generate a panic event to all BMCs on a panic'
 23        help
 24          When a panic occurs, this will cause the IPMI message handler to
 25          generate an IPMI event describing the panic to each interface
 26          registered with the message handler.
 27 
 28 config IPMI_PANIC_STRING
 29         bool 'Generate OEM events containing the panic string'
 30         depends on IPMI_PANIC_EVENT
 31         help
 32           When a panic occurs, this will cause the IPMI message handler to
 33           generate IPMI OEM type f0 events holding the IPMB address of the
 34           panic generator (byte 4 of the event), a sequence number for the
 35           string (byte 5 of the event) and part of the string (the rest of the
 36           event).  Bytes 1, 2, and 3 are the normal usage for an OEM event.
 37           You can fetch these events and use the sequence numbers to piece the
 38           string together.
 39 
 40 config IPMI_DEVICE_INTERFACE
 41        tristate 'Device interface for IPMI'
 42        help
 43          This provides an IOCTL interface to the IPMI message handler so
 44          userland processes may use IPMI.  It supports poll() and select().
 45 
 46 config IPMI_SI
 47        tristate 'IPMI System Interface handler'
 48        help
 49          Provides a driver for System Interfaces (KCS, SMIC, BT).
 50          Currently, only KCS and SMIC are supported.  If
 51          you are using IPMI, you should probably say "y" here.
 52 
 53 config IPMI_SI_PROBE_DEFAULTS
 54        bool 'Probe for all possible IPMI system interfaces by default'
 55        default n
 56        depends on IPMI_SI
 57        help
 58          Modern systems will usually expose IPMI interfaces via a discoverable
 59          firmware mechanism such as ACPI or DMI. Older systems do not, and so
 60          the driver is forced to probe hardware manually. This may cause boot
 61          delays. Say "n" here to disable this manual probing. IPMI will then
 62          only be available on older systems if the "ipmi_si_intf.trydefaults=1"
 63          boot argument is passed.
 64 
 65 config IPMI_SSIF
 66        tristate 'IPMI SMBus handler (SSIF)'
 67        select I2C
 68        help
 69          Provides a driver for a SMBus interface to a BMC, meaning that you
 70          have a driver that must be accessed over an I2C bus instead of a
 71          standard interface.  This module requires I2C support.
 72 
 73 config IPMI_POWERNV
 74        depends on PPC_POWERNV
 75        tristate 'POWERNV (OPAL firmware) IPMI interface'
 76        help
 77          Provides a driver for OPAL firmware-based IPMI interfaces.
 78 
 79 config IPMI_WATCHDOG
 80        tristate 'IPMI Watchdog Timer'
 81        help
 82          This enables the IPMI watchdog timer.
 83 
 84 config IPMI_POWEROFF
 85        tristate 'IPMI Poweroff'
 86        help
 87          This enables a function to power off the system with IPMI if
 88          the IPMI management controller is capable of this.
