Hey Levi,

It seems I hit the same errors as you did (after installing
linux/ipmi.h, which isn't installed by default on RHEL4).  The '__user'
#define seems to have issues.  

Anyways, I did a patch that seems to resolve the problem.  Could you try
it out?

I've also committed to the 0.4.0 CVS and 0.3.0-stable branches if its
more convenient for you to just update from CVS.

Thanks,
Al
