Actually IPMI was working until yesterday (on Linux rhel 5) and stopped
working when I installed FreeBSD 8.2 amd64 (same result with FreeBSD 8.2

As my google searches pointed to me, the problem on FreeBSD seems to be
related to the bge driver.
I tried to configure hw.bge.allow_asf=0|1 and hw.pci.enable_msi=0 in
loader.conf, which didn't fix the problem.
Should I try to compile an older bge driver or fix the new one ?
