I have the most basic of basic bits of OpenBMC support:

but it lacks support for literally everything except getting access to
host console.

The reality is, if we're going to ship OpenBMC based OpenPOWER machines,
we need to be able to test them with our automated tests, which means
either the current REST API has to be consumed, or something like
RedFish needs to happen (and be consumed).

It could be helpful to have the OPAL test teams work alongside OpenBMC
dev on this and a good view into the world of living with OpenBMC?
