kipmi0 using 100% CPU

Seeing 1.00 average server load – 100% of a single core used by kipmi0.

Resolved by executing from shell, as root -

echo 100 > /sys/module/ipmi_si/parameters/kipmid_max_busy_us

Another note:

On CentOS/RHEL, that command can be made permanent by adding it to /etc/rc.d/rc.local. The rc.local runs after all of the other init scripts
