0.7.3 - 12/01/08
o Add workaround into ipmi-sensors and ipmi-sensors-config for
motherboards that do not support the Get Sensor Thresholds command.
o Output 'NA' on sensors in ipmi-sensors and ipmimonitoring that have
sensor scanning disabled.  In libipmimonitoring, appropriately handle
sensors with sensor scanning disabled and return 'unreadable sensor'.
o Add the following ipmimonitoring/libipmimonitoring interpretations.
  Power Unit Device Installation
  Fan Transition Availability
  Power Supply State
  Drive Slot State
  Drive Slot Predictive Failure
  System ACPI Power State
  Button Switch
  Button Switch State
  Entity Presence Device Install
  Processor State
o Fix typos in macro names and string names for sensor types to
accurately coincide with IPMI specification.  May lead to slightly
different inputs/outputs in ipmi-sensors and pef-config.  Altered
strings include:
  "Platform Chassis Intrusion" -> "Physical Security"
  "Platform Security Violation" -> "Platform Security Violation Attempt"
  "Post Memory Resize" -> "POST Memory Resize"
  "System Firmware" -> "System Firmware Progress"
  "Button" -> "Button/Switch"
  "Microcontroller" -> "Microcontroller/Coprocessor"
  "Cable Interconnect" -> "Cable/Interconnect"
  "Slot Connector" -> "Slot/Connector"
  "ACPI Power State" -> "System ACPI Power State"
  "Monitor Asic" -> "Monitor ASIC/IC"
o Fix ipmi-sensors non-recoverable threshold output corner case.
o Fix ipmi-sensors group selection corner cases.
o Fix ipmiconsole workarounds command line parse corner case.
o Fix ipmi-sel/libfreeipmi event data output corner cases.
o Use a reservation ID on all SEL entry operations to workaround
some manufacturer compliance issues.
o Fix config option names in ipmimonitoring/libipmimonitoring.
o Add forgotten bitmask flags in libipmimonitoring.
o In ipmi-sensors default output, output non-recoverable or
non-critical thresholds if both non-critical thresholds are not
o Remove unused libfreeipmi workaround flags/macros.  Contain tool
