    First of all, thank you for your initiating this discussion. Obviously,
    it should be done but I couldn't put enough time to make it.
    I don't have any objection on that. It would be really helpful if you
    grab patches from there for upstreaming. Please let me know if you need
    any help or clarification from me or from Intel during the upstreaming.
If there are any other feature patches available in Intel-BMC tree which can be 
upstreamed to openbmc repo, please let community know so anyone who has
bandwidth can grab those patches and upstream it rather than making a copy
to their local repo.
