Give Feedback Sensor Information

The Intel® MAX® 10 Board Management Controller monitors approximately 19 sensors. The OPAE Manager enumerates all the sensors and adds the sensors to a global list. The FPGA reads this information through its SPI interface.

The following data structure describes the sensor info:

struct opae_sensor_info {
        TAILQ_ENTRY(opae_sensor_info) node;
        const char *name;
        const char *type;
        unsigned int id;
        unsigned int high_fatal;
        unsigned int high_warn;
        unsigned int low_fatal;
        unsigned int low_warn;
        unsigned int hysteresis;
        unsigned int multiplier;
        unsigned int flags;
        unsigned int value;
        unsigned int value_reg;
