The code will assign its own error log ID to this PEL, and also update the
commit timestamp field to the current time.
+#### ESEL
+
+This keyword's data contains a full PEL in string format. This is how hostboot
+sends down PELs when it is configured in IPMI communication mode. The PEL is
+handled just like the PEL obtained using the RAWPEL keyword.
+
+The syntax is:
+
+```
+ESEL=
+"00 00 df 00 00 00 00 20 00 04 12 01 6f aa 00 00 50 48 00 30 01 00 33 00 00..."
+```

+Note that there are 16 bytes of IPMI SEL data before the PEL data starts.
