OM startup hanging

Ok so a new twist on things.....
ps -Alf --forest shows the ipmi startup script still running with an
associated child process of modprobe. I used the script dsm_sa_ipmi
script in /etc/init.d and did a stop; stopped OM too. Restarted, then
stopped again. Nothing would get rid of the modprobe process.
As luck would have it, it finally went away.
Now I am a little concerned because lsmod shows the ipmi_si_drv as

But to note, when I run the /etc/init.d script dsm_sa_ipmi it reports:
ipmi_msghandler module loaded.
ipmi_si_drv module loaded.
ipmi_devintf module loaded.
What does this all mean? Do I have a problem or not? Seems like
OpenManage is working.
