APIs differ greatly.

Can anyone show me quick ssif-cmd usage example and sample output,
so I can check if it works for me?

Is there any progress with SSIF interface on FreeBSD?

Also, anyone knows if SSIF interface works on Intel SE7501WV2
and what smbus slave address it has? Dmidecode shows me:

    DMI type 38, 18 bytes.
    IPMI Device Information
        Interface Type: KCS (Keyboard Control Style)
        Specification Version: 1.5
        I2C Slave Address: 0x10
        Base Address: 0x0000000000000CA2 (I/O)

However 0x10 address doesn't show in smbmsg(8) probe:

# smbmsg -p
Probing for devices on /dev/smb0:

Device @0x18: rw
Device @0x30: rw
Device @0x32: rw

Output of the bmc-info, just for the case:
