Hi Holger,

Thanks for the patch.  This was on my todo, but w/o a motherboard to
test on, I just let it linger.  I think you forgot to add the
appropriate permutation of cipher suite/SHA256 into
libfreeipmi/src/debug/ and the manpages in common/man/, but no worries,
I can add that myself.

Only one question, are cipher suites 15-17 defined in the upcoming DCMI
1.1?  ASAIK it hasn't been released publicly.  I have a tiny concern
about committing something that is not yet finalized.  Or is DCMI 1.1
finalized and going to be released publicly soon??
