Subject[RESEND][PATCH -tip 2/3] x86, mce: Revert "add mce=nopoll option to disable timer polling"
Disabling only polling but not cmci is pointless setting.
Instead of "mce=nopoll" which tend to be paired with cmci disablement,
it rather make sense to have a "mce=ignore_ce" option that disable
both of polling and cmci at once. A patch for this new implementation
will follow this reverting patch.

OTOH, once booted, we can disable polling by setting check_interval
to 0, but there are no mention about the fact. Later Andi will post
updated documents that can respond this issue.
