I couldn't find this in the IPMB specification.
IIRC, the maximum on I2C is 32 byts, and table 6-9 in the IPMI spec,
under "IPMB Output" states: The IPMB standard message length is
specified as 32 bytes, maximum, including slave address.
We are using IPMI OEM messages and our response size is around 150 bytes
For some of responses. That's why I had set it to 240 bytes.
I'm not sure where 128 came from, but maybe it should be reduced to 31.
