FreeBSD Port: ipmi-kmod-20060418_1

I've updated the sysutils/ipmi-kmod port to contain the new ipmi code  
committed to -current the other day. Here's the PR containing a patch  
to upgrade the port to pull in the new code: 
cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=103708 (I also attached the patch to this email).

The new version of the port seems to work fine on my test amd64 and  
i386 machines running 6.1. Both of those have Supermicro motherboards  
and IPMI modules. Hopefully it will work with these newer Dell BIOS  
releases, too!
