Subject: [PATCH] ipmi: Prefer ACPI system interfaces over SMBIOS ones

From: Corey Minyard <cminyard@...sta.com>

The recent changes to add SMBIOS (DMI) IPMI interfaces as platform
devices caused DMI to be selected before ACPI, causing ACPI type
of operations to not work.

Andrew,

I looked a bit more and found that I already had this queued for the
next kernel release, it fixes your issue and another issue, too.
If this works for you, I'll request this for stable.
