One other thought.  

We should also test to see if the output of "Password20" makes sense,
since it won't on many IPMI 1.5 machines.  I think it would be
sufficient to run the Set user Password command and try to test a dummy
20 byte password.   If the result comes back "invalid input" (I think
that's completion code 0xCC), we know it isn't and we shouldn't output
the config option.
