We had the situation where the standard CentOS 5.x
kernel would kill the IPMI adapter on our SuperMicro
cluster until we pulled the power and booted into a
mainline kernel.  Made installing nodes via kickstart
a little interesting.

Fortunately this seems to have been fixed with newer
IPMI code from SuperMicro.
