Subject[PATCH 3/4] ACPI, APEI, Add APEI bit support in generic _OSC call
Date
In APEI firmware first mode, hardware error is reported by hardware to
firmware firstly, then firmware reports the error to Linux in a GHES
error record via POLL/SCI/IRQ/NMI etc.

This may result in some issues if OS has no full APEI support. So
some firmware implementation will work in a back-compatible mode by
default. Where firmware will only notify OS in old-fashion, without
GHES record. For example, for a fatal hardware error, only NMI is
signaled, no GHES record.

To gain full APEI power on these machines, APEI bit in generic _OSC
call should be specified to tell firmware that Linux has full APEI
support. This patch adds the APEI bit support in generic _OSC call.
