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_SSIF 54 tristate 'IPMI SMBus handler (SSIF)' 55 select I2C 56 help 57 Provides a driver for a SMBus interface to a BMC, meaning that you 58 have a driver that must be accessed over an I2C bus instead of a 59 standard interface. This module requires I2C support. 60 61 config IPMI_POWERNV 62 depends on PPC_POWERNV 63 tristate 'POWERNV (OPAL firmware) IPMI interface' 64 help 65 Provides a driver for OPAL firmware-based IPMI interfaces. 66 67 config IPMI_WATCHDOG 68 tristate 'IPMI Watchdog Timer' 69 help 70 This enables the IPMI watchdog timer. 71 72 config IPMI_POWEROFF 73 tristate 'IPMI Poweroff' 74 help 75 This enables a function to power off the system with IPMI if 76 the IPMI management controller is capable of this. 77 78 endif # IPMI_HANDLER 79 80 config ASPEED_BT_IPMI_BMC 81 depends on ARCH_ASPEED 82 tristate "BT IPMI bmc driver" 83 help 84 Provides a driver for the BT (Block Transfer) IPMI interface 85 found on Aspeed SOCs (AST2400 and AST2500). The driver 86 implements the BMC side of the BT interface.
