I think it would work too if you had only one event:

* trace_hw_error(...)

which would have as an argument a string describing it, like
"Uncorrected Memory Read Error", "Memory Read Error (out of range)" "TLB
Multimatch Error" etc., followed by the rest of the error info.

Currently, you're introducing at least 5 trace_* calls _only_ for memory
errors. What about the remaining couples of tens of errors which haven't
been addressed yet?

Thanks.
