Thanks. I've updated in the latest XLS. Let me know if I didn't
capture this correctly.

I changed this too. Is that for panic handler enhancements or IPMI?
Maybe I should add a separate line for IPMI.... Does panicsel implement
the full requirement?

This one I'm hoping Steve can answer as I'm unsure why he wrote
unlikely, unless it was because going forward MV plans on using IPMI
(or, maybe I had a cut and paste error).

I changed all columns that used to say that as "Unknown." I originally
had meant 2, but see now it probably is 1 for some distros. Unknown
