SubjectRE: [PATCH 1/3] mce: Add a msg string to the MCE tracepoint

Sounds dubious:

Booting Node 0, Processors #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 Ok.
Booting Node 1, Processors #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 #14 #15 Ok.
Booting Node 0, Processors #16 #17 #18 #19 #20 #21 #22 #23 Ok.
Booting Node 1, Processors #24 #25 #26 #27 #28 #29 #30 #31
Brought up 32 CPUs

Now those are logical cpu numbers, and we brought up the first HT
thread on each core first, and then came around for a 2nd pass
bringing up the other HT thread. This order is determined by
how the BIOS lists the cpus (and in this case it seems to be
doing so according to recommendations) - so here our core numbers
will match what you said. But the BIOS could do something
strange and list logical cpus alternating between sockets. In
which case cores 0, 2, 4, 6 ... would be on node 0, and cores
1, 3, 5, 7, ... on node 1.
