I have finally gotten some time to work on this, this series of
patches adds an IPMI interface to qemu.  The changes are roughly:

patches 01-05 - Add the capability to have a chardev reconnect if
the connections fails.  This way, if using an external BMC, qemu
will detect the failure and periodically attempt to reconnect.
This also adds ways for the device code to get an event on a
disconnect and connect so it can handle it properly.  This is
probably useful for things besides IPMI.  There are also a few
small bugfixes in this.

patches 06-14 - Add the IPMI device itself, with an ISA interface
for now (PCI and others can also be added easily).

patches 15-18 - Add a way to dynamically add content to the ACPI
tables, and add the capability to add the IPMI information to the

Patches 19-20 - Add a way to dynamically add content to the SMBIOS
tables, and add an IPMI entry to the table.
