Intel Gets Back To Years-Long Journey Upstreaming PECI – Phoronix

Intel started supporting the PECI communication interface in the Linux kernel.

Seems like an approach to make OpenBMC rich to support CPU package and DIMM temperature reading via Linux drivers. A move which AMD is still proprietary to provide the support.
