HP-OpenIPMI driver - SLES11SP1


Below are the changes to the hp-openipmi 8.5 source code to be able to compile it for SLES11 SP1. Have compiled kernel module, but not tested yet. A structure had an [unused?] item removed, and a function was renamed. Needs better wrappers, but hey, I'm working on the alpha version...it's cardboard.

Thanks for the effort to track this down.

FYI the driver improvements seem to have finally made their way upstream and are now in RHEL 5.5:

Yes, and these changes are already included in SLES11 SP1 as well - there is no need/benefit in installing hp-OpenIPMI any longer. There is an advisory pending on this topic.
