new week, new stuff:

Here's how the MCE TP looks like with a couple of MCEs injected:

mcegen.py-2318 [001] .N.. 580.902409: mce_record: [Hardware Error]: CPU:0 MC4_STATUS[Over|CE|-|PCC|AddrV|CECC]: 0xd604c00006080a41 MC4_ADDR: 0x0000000000000016
[Hardware Error]: Northbridge Error (node 0): DRAM ECC error detected on the NB.
[Hardware Error]: ERR_ADDR: 0x16 row: 0, channel: 0
[Hardware Error]: cache level: L1, mem/io: MEM, mem-tx: DWR, part-proc: RES (no timeout)
[Hardware Error]: CPU: 0, MCGc/s: 0/0, MC4: d604c00006080a41, ADDR/MISC: 0000000000000016/dead57ac1ba0babe, RIP: 00:<0000000000000000>, TSC: 0, TIME: 0)

mcegen.py-2326 [001] .N.. 598.795494: mce_record: [Hardware Error]: CPU:0 MC4_STATUS[Over|UE|MiscV|PCC|-|UECC]: 0xfa002000001c011b[Hardware Error]: Northbridge Error (node 0): L3 ECC data cache error.
[Hardware Error]: cache level: L3/GEN, tx: GEN, mem-tx: RD
[Hardware Error]: CPU: 0, MCGc/s: 0/0, MC4: fa002000001c011b, ADDR/MISC: 0000000000000016/dead57ac1ba0babe, RIP: 00:<0000000000000000>, TSC: 0, TIME: 0)

mcegen.py-2343 [013] .N.. 619.620698: mce_record: [Hardware Error]: CPU:0 MC4_STATUS[-|UE|MiscV|PCC|-|UECC]: 0xba002100000f001b[Hardware Error]: Northbridge Error (node 0): GART Table Walk data error.
[Hardware Error]: cache level: L3/GEN, tx: GEN
[Hardware Error]: CPU: 0, MCGc/s: 0/0, MC4: ba002100000f001b, ADDR/MISC: 0000000000000016/dead57ac1ba0babe, RIP: 00:<0000000000000000>, TSC: 0, TIME: 0)

Basically the lines excluding the last one are the string message
generated by the decoding code and collected into the ras decode buffer
using ras_printk. Btw, the buffer enlarges itself on demand when we're
close to filling it up with the decoding info.

The last line is the MCE TP with useless IMO fields removed which will
be used by the RAS daemon in userspace.

I'll be splitting the single patch into multiple, more digestible chunks
for review now.
