Ipmitool assumes timestamps to be specified in UTC time whereas
IPMI spec 2.0 specifies that "Timestamps used for SDR and SEL
Records are assumed to be specified in local time".
"ipmitool sel time set .." set time as UTC time, and "ipmitool
sel time get" assumes timestamp is specified in UTC time before
converting it in Local time for display.
The problem occurs when sel time has been set in local time
(compliantly to IPMI spec) by an external tool.
May be my understanding of IPMI spec is wrong?
In the other case, should not Ipmitool be modified ?
