A startup script that can do these:

1. Set OS Name, Version, System Hostname in BMC
2. Get BMC URL/IP address from BMC

Would benefit:
1. users who would like to fetch hostname/OS Name/Version.
2. launch web-interface to BMC where supported with "xdg-open $BMC_URL"
3. Use the BMC_IP for other purposes like
3a. snmp proxy from host to BMC when BMC agent present.
3b. expose BMC IP/URL via other systems management interfaces (like wsman).

    Added startup script and config file that accomplishes this to this tracker.

    There are four pieces of information that are exchanged here:
    1. OS Name - this is a standard IPMI command
    2. OS Hostname - this is a standard IPMI command
    3. OS Version - this is a delloem command. The script has provision to include other OEMs if they
    support this command.
    5. BMC IP - this is a standard IPMI command
    6. BMC URL - this is a delloem command. Although, on non-dell systems, this would simply be
    "https://$BMC_IP:443"

    So, with the exception of #3, all of them should work on any system that supports the respective
    commands.

    While I developed these for RHEL, I would like to have this working on popular Linux distros. I will
    include a debian and suse version of the script soon (one this one is accepted). There is a systemd
    unit coming up as well.
