Hi Jean,

The iLO people came back to me and they are a little bit reluctant at
this point. They are concerned that we screw up the HW or interfere
with the BMC if we mock around with fans and I2C registers :-)

They suggested to use IPMI, so I started to look into it and it does
seem promising. I noticed that Yani has a patch to interface IPMI to
lm-sensors (see

What is the state of this patch and is there any chance it'll make it
into mainline? Anything I can help with, Yani?

I have a DL385 G2 at my hand that I can use and I'll play around with
the patch probably next week after returning from vacation.
