[Linux-cluster] fence_ipmilan / custom hardware target address (ipmitool -t hexaddr)

I am looking to adapt fence_ipmilan to interact with a custom
implementation of an IPMI BMC. Doing so requires the use of ipmitool's
-t option to bridge IPMI requests to a specified internal
(non-networked) hardware address.

I do not see this option existing in fence_ipmilan or any of the other
fence_agents modules.

The ipmitool operation would be '/path/to/ipmitool -t 0x42 chassis power
<operation>'. No network, IP, Auth, User, Password or other arguments

I want to check with the developers to see if there is an existing path
for this use case before submitting a patch for consideration.
