I have limited time and resources, and I just never did one.

No, there is not at the time. There are services that the IPMI driver provides that cannot be provided on the standard blocking interface.

Not that I know of.

Are you sure you have a standard SMBus interface? IIRC, there are some PPC systems with a non-standard interface over I2C. So even if you did all this, it may still not work.
