Summary: OPAL firmware utilities
This package contains utility programs.

The 'gard' utility can read, parse and clear hardware gard partitions
on OpenPower platforms. The 'getscom' and 'putscom' utilities provide
an interface to query or modify the registers of the different chipsets
of an OpenPower system. 'pflash' is a tool to access the flash modules
on such systems and update the OpenPower firmware.
