# # IPMI device configuration # menuconfig IPMI_HANDLER tristate 'IPMI top-level message handler' depends on HAS_IOMEM select IPMI_DMI_DECODE if DMI help This enables the central IPMI message handler, required for IPMI to work. IPMI is a standard for managing sensors (temperature, voltage, etc.) in a system. See <file:Documentation/IPMI.txt> for more details on the driver. If unsure, say N. config IPMI_DMI_DECODE bool if IPMI_HANDLER config IPMI_PANIC_EVENT bool 'Generate a panic event to all BMCs on a panic' help When a panic occurs, this will cause the IPMI message handler to generate an IPMI event describing the panic to each interface registered with the message handler. config IPMI_PANIC_STRING bool 'Generate OEM events containing the panic string' depends on IPMI_PANIC_EVENT help When a panic occurs, this will cause the IPMI message handler to generate IPMI OEM type f0 events holding the IPMB address of the panic generator (byte 4 of the event), a sequence number for the string (byte 5 of the event) and part of the string (the rest of the event). Bytes 1, 2, and 3 are the normal usage for an OEM event. You can fetch these events and use the sequence numbers to piece the string together. config IPMI_DEVICE_INTERFACE tristate 'Device interface for IPMI' help This provides an IOCTL interface to the IPMI message handler so userland processes may use IPMI. It supports poll() and select(). config IPMI_SI tristate 'IPMI System Interface handler' help Provides a driver for System Interfaces (KCS, SMIC, BT). Currently, only KCS and SMIC are supported. If you are using IPMI, you should probably say "y" here. config IPMI_SSIF tristate 'IPMI SMBus handler (SSIF)' select I2C help Provides a driver for a SMBus interface to a BMC, meaning that you have a driver that must be accessed over an I2C bus instead of a standard interface. This module requires I2C support. config IPMI_POWERNV depends on PPC_POWERNV tristate 'POWERNV (OPAL firmware) IPMI interface' help Provides a driver for OPAL firmware-based IPMI interfaces. config IPMI_WATCHDOG tristate 'IPMI Watchdog Timer' help This enables the IPMI watchdog timer. config IPMI_POWEROFF tristate 'IPMI Poweroff' help This enables a function to power off the system with IPMI if the IPMI management controller is capable of this. endif # IPMI_HANDLER config ASPEED_BT_IPMI_BMC depends on ARCH_ASPEED || COMPILE_TEST depends on REGMAP && REGMAP_MMIO && MFD_SYSCON tristate "BT IPMI bmc driver" help Provides a driver for the BT (Block Transfer) IPMI interface found on Aspeed SOCs (AST2400 and AST2500). The driver implements the BMC side of the BT interface.
