Auxiliary channel info. For channel Fh, this is byte 8 is the interrupt for the system interface, byte 9 is the interrupt for the event message buffer interface. Valid values are: 00h-0Fh - IRQ 0-15 10h-13h - PCI A-D, respectively 14h - SMI 15h - SCI 20h-5Fh - System interrupt 0-62, respecitively 60h - Assigned by ACPI, SMBIOS, or a plug and play mechanism. FFh - No interrupt or unspecified All other values are reserved. For Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) channel types, this value is OEM defined. These bytes are reserved for all other channel types. Table 3.3: Get Channel Info Command, NetFN App (06h), Cmd 42h
Table 3.4 shows the format of a Send Message command. Note that the spec says the response can have response data for non-system interface channels. However, this is not actually the case, response data for LAN and serial channels is carried in a different manner.
Channel information, bits are: 0-4 - Channel number 4-5 - reserved 6-7 - tracking type. See section 3.4.3 for more information. Values are:
00b - No tracking 01b - Track request 10b - Send raw. This is a test mechanism or a mechanism used for transmitting proprietary protocols. It is optional.
11b - reserved Message data. The format depends on the channel type. See the section on the specific
channel type for more information.
Completion code. If transmitting on an IPMB, SMBus, or PCI management bus, the following return codes are used to inform the sender of sending problems:
81h - lost arbitration
82h - Bus Error
83h - NAK on Write Table 3.4: Send Message Command, NetFN App (06h), Cmd 34h
