This is then an issue with OpenIPMI which will be fixed upstream and trickle down? If so, any ideas on a workaround? If it isn't a temporary issue with OpenIPMI and a kernel architectural change, what should be done to fix this?

I would have thought this would have made it to SL by now. I wonder if I'm not accessing a mirror with the latest and greatest updates.
