The base address of 0 is suspicious. I used to have this on my Asus
board but a BIOS update fixed it. You may want to look for a BIOS
update for your system or a BIOS option to enable the IPMI controller.

Note that I did not manage to get IPMI to work on my system either so
far, I really don't know much about it so I am probably not the best
advice provider in this area.

If you have technical documentation for your system, it would be
interesting to see if they mention anything about IPMI or about the
SMBus being multiplexed.
