Add IPMI poweroff control to sysfs

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Is it possible to get this into 2.6.14?  It's a fairly simple change.
Put the IPMI poweroff_powercycle parameter into sysfs.  This
field is dynamically settable and is valuable to have in sysfs.
