Merge vmc_SB_fix.patch

Released: Oct 8, 2008     Updated: Oct 8, 2008


When a sensor asserts, a SEL would be created to describe such event, and it
would be inserted to vMC SEL Repository(and written to PMEM if supported).
If CONFIG_IPMI_VMC_ENABLE_IPMB is enabled, then vMC would send a msg to BMC
as well.

On all BSPs except IXDP2801 vMC would send message to BMC itself, while on
IXDP2801 BMC would bridge vMC message onto IPMB.

This patch makes clear the type of bmc_addr in bmc_private structure to be
ipmi_ipmb_addr for IXDP2801, whereas ipmi_system_interface_addr for all the
rest of BSPs. And only ipmi_ipmb_addr type has member of slave_addr.
