** Description changed:

  [Impact]
  There are several stability issues with the i2c-xlp9xxx that cause 
communication issues between the host and the BMC, leading to unpredictable 
results when the ipmi-ssif module tries to enumerate the device (/dev/ipmi0).
  
  [Test Case]
  Reboot the system several times, each time verifying that /dev/ipmi0 is 
present and functional (e.g. using 'sudo ipmitool lan print').
+ *** Note that systems need to be running firmware 6.2 or greater ***
  
  [Regression Risk]
  All patches are clean cherry picks from upstream, restricted to a driver that 
is only used on this platform in Ubuntu (also used on some MIPS platforms, for 
which we have no port).
