Here, you should add a "normal" chardev property so that people can use
-chardev and -device to create the IPMI interface.  The device can be
created like this:

    -chardev ...,id=charipmi -device ipmi,interface=kcs,chardev=charipmi

If the chardev is absent, the local interface is used instead.

See docs/qdev-device-use.txt for more information.

I had originally used a "normal" chardev here. However, I needed a way for the connection to be re-established if it dropped for some reason, for obvious reasons. The standard chardev doesn't seem to have any provision for this, at least none that I could find.

Am I missing something? If not, should I add that capability to the chardev?
