-------------------------
o Add IPv6 hostname support to FreeIPMI, all of FreeIPMI can now
  take IPv6 addresses as inputs to "host" parameters, options, or 
  inputs.

  libfreeipmi.
o Add --no-session option in ipmi-raw.
o Add SDR cache options to ipmi-config.
o Legacy -f short option for --flush-cache and -Q short option

  - Remove excessive memsets and clears of data.
  - Remove unnecessary "double input checks".
  - Remove expensive input checks in libfreeipmi fiid library.
    Fallout from this may include FIID_ERR_FIELD_NOT_FOUND errors
    in different fiid functions.
  - Remove unnecessary input checks in libfreeipmi fiid library.
  - Add recent 'lookups' of fields in fiid library to internal

  - Update libfreeipmi core API to use poll() instead of
    select(), to avoid issues with applications with a high
    number of threads.
