.LP
\fIassumeio\fR - This workaround flag will assume inband interfaces
communicate with system I/O rather than being memory-mapped.  This
will work around systems that report invalid base addresses.  Those
hitting this issue may see "device not supported" or "could not find
inband device" errors.  Issue observed on HP ProLiant DL145 G1.
.LP
\fIspinpoll\fR - This workaround flag will inform some inband drivers
(most notably the KCS driver) to spin while polling rather than
putting the process to sleep.  This may significantly improve the wall
clock running time of tools because an operating system scheduler's
granularity may be much larger than the time it takes to perform a
single IPMI message transaction.  However, by spinning, your system
may be performing less useful work by not contexting out the tool for
a more useful task.
