HP Proliant ML110 G3 with Lights-Out 100c (Baseboard Management
Controller) has an IPMI interface. It has own MAC address
and IP address different from normal Ethernet port
and it shares physical network port with normal Ethernet interface.
But after bge driver is loaded, IPMI packet cannot be sent
through the port.
The same problem is reported to FreeBSD kern/88741.
[bge] IPMI access disabled when bge driver is loaded
Load bge driver on the machine which has IPMI interface
shared physical network port with bge interface.
