At last - not one but two easily obtainable, affordable, owner 
controlled, no-PSP/ME, libre firmware boards that are new enough to be 
useful and have 99% feature parity with commercial closed source 
systems. (100% if we had SR-IOV/ARI support)


The only thing missing from it now is serial over IPMI although you can 
use serial via SSH and screen at the moment, and of course the ability 
to change the password without re-compiling.

Even if you don't need a BMC you still might want to install it for the 
OS-independent fan control, otherwise you can maybe send your ASMB 
module to someone else who needs one.

It would be nice if someone is able to locate a source for the ASMB4/5 
modules for those who do not have one.

They appear quite simple - no reason they should cost $50 or w/e - 
perhaps a good samaritan could figure out how to make them?
