On all Intel motherboards, there are various BIOS events logged by the BMC into the SEL.
Some are informational, such as System Events that are logged normally during boot, but others are for various BIOS detected faults related to CPU, Memory, etc.
The ipmidirect plugin artificially restricts the HandleEvents from passing up any BIOS-detected events.
It returns the message "remove event: system software event"
The BIOS fault events need to be handled.
Example Intel motherboards: S5520UR, S2600CO, S2400EP, S5000PAL, etc.
Sample command to simulate a BIOS Memory ECC error event for testing:
ipmiutil cmd 00 20 10 02 33 03 0c 02 6f a0 00 21
In investigating this, I also see that SDRs that are owned by BIOS are not included in the RDRs.
