Problem was solved for me by "modprobe ipmi_devintf". Full list of modules:

$ lsmod|grep ipmi
ipmi_devintf            8103  2 
ipmi_si                42687  1 
ipmi_msghandler        36150  2 ipmi_devintf,ipmi_si

It does not work on all motherboards. For example it works on  Intel S5500BC
and Intel S5000PAL, but does not works on Intel SRKA4.
