Following two patches enable the feature to log IPMI events from ipmievd
daemon to the servicelog database by using a FIFO and a servicelog daemon.
First patch modifies ipmievd (part of ipmitool package) to write all of the
IPMI events to the FIFO.
Second patch creates a daemon (will be part of servicelog package) which
reads from the FIFO and logs them to servicelog database through servielog
The servicelog packages provides a library for logging service-related
events to the servicelog database, and a number of command-line utilities
for viewing the contents of the database. The concept of a serviceable event
is introduced; if an event occurs that requires a service action to repair
(such as a hardware failure that requires the replacement of a Field
Replaceable Unit (FRU), or an issue that requires a firmware update to fix),
the event is considered serviceable.
