[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/15] IPMI device for qemu

From: minyard
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/15] IPMI device for qemu
Date: Tue, 7 Apr 2015 14:51:29 -0500

This set of patches adds an IPMI KCS or BT interface to qemu,
along with a local simulated baseboard management controller (BMC)
and a way to connect to an external BMC.  It is mostly unchanged
from previous release, except for bug fixes and the following

The ACPI generation code custom to this was removed and it's now
using the new aml-build code.

Because of the previous change, capability was added to hook into
the SSDT build process so that devices could insert their own
table entries.

Also because of this, and because Benjamin Herrenschmidt pointed
out the need to have this on systems without SMBIOS and ACPI, that
code has now been made optional.  The SMBIOS uses TARGET_I386 to
do this, which seems to be safe.  The ACPI code required
transfering the CONFIG_ACPI entry from the default configs to the
target configs, in a new patch (patch 13).  I'm not sure this was
the best way, but adding a new file to do it got messy, and this
seemed simple.  Maybe there's a better way.

Also, there's lots of config options for this, and I'm not sure they
are really all necessary.  Should there be just one CONFIG_IPMI that
covers everything?
