Hi,

Actually I added an ipmi blob interface to smbios-mdr
 https://github.com/openbmc/smbios-mdr/tree/master/src/smbios-ipmi-blobs
<https://github.com/openbmc/smbios-mdr/tree/master/src/smbios-ipmi-blobs>.
With this interface you can send the smbios tables to BMC either through
LinuxBoot or host. The LinuxBoot code
https://github.com/u-root/u-root/tree/master/cmds/exp/smbios_transfer.
Writing and committing to this blob will generate the MDR header.
