[ECOS] IPMI driver for KCS interface

Hi Jerzy,
I've also got some interest in IPMI.
The way I expected it would be handled is as a set of library routines that
could be layered on top of a hardware transport layer (serial or IP for
instance).
I'm not an IPMI expert, but it appears to me that IPMI is basically a
communications protocol rather than a hardware driver.
Is that how you view it?

Hello Folks,

My current task is create (maybe port from Linux) IPMI KCS driver for eCos.
I
have as always few doubts regarding new driver i.e. :
How should I construct driver whether it can be "authentic" eCos driver? (I
mean how this device should be accessible from user application side -
"direct" by special function or by io function e.g. read/write )

If someone from eCos comunity has some advice/tip/demand regarding IPMI it
will be very helpful and of course appreciate.

thanks,
jerzy
