[CentOS] Temperature on Poweredge 2850

Hi Timo,

sensors is also my goto utility for temperature. However, they do not have
a drive for the 'old' 2850.
perl sensors-detect
Driver `to-be-written':
  * ISA bus, address 0xca8
    Chip `IPMI BMC KCS' (confidence: 8)
Note: there is no driver for IPMI BMC KCS yet.

I was able to get it going using OpenIPMI/ipmiutil and also freeipmi.
ipmiutil seems to have more detailed reports. Note that hddtemp also does
not work on the 2850 since S.M.A.R.T is not available. Hope this helps
somebody.

Thanks
-Surya
