- ndctl backport from Focal isn't really needed to build it (only a
debhelper version change)

ndctl itself, correct, is not necessary. the current bionic ndctl
package is fine.  but package wise, from what I saw, libndctl6 (which I
presume is built from the ndctl source) is a required dependency for
ipmctl. Maybe I am not seeing everything in the machinery there, which
is a valid response, I'm just noting what I observed while trying to
install the Focal debs on Bionic.

- are there any missing features in Bionic ndctl that disallow ipctl to work 
properly ?
As far as I know, there are not, as I said, I had to install that as it was a 
package depenendency.  

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libipmctl4:amd64:
 libipmctl4:amd64 depends on libndctl6 (>= 63); however:
  package libndctl6 is not installed.

So the libndctl6 in Bionic won't work for libipmctl4 as it's version 61.
so maybe that could be changed in packaging so that libipmctl4 can
depend with any libndctl6 version, but I do not currently know if that
causes issues with missing features or functions, or whatever.

- want me to provide a PPA for you to test it ?
Certainly. I have hardware to test with and am happy to help in any way I can 
to move this along.
