Subject[RFC -v3 PATCH 0/3] RAS: Use MCE tracepoint for decoded MCEs
Date
From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@amd.com>

Third version of the patchset, with the latest addition of
"hijacking" EDAC printk output when a RAS agent is running, i.e.
/sys/devices/system/ras/agent is 1. Btw, I'm open for better suggestions
on how to do the logic of having a RAS agent running - currently, it is
a bool which is visible through sysfs and userspace can turn it on and
off.

Changelog:

* V2:

Here's a second version of the patchset with the buffer enlarging ripped
out. 1/4 in the series could go in independently since it is a cleanup,
I'll add it to a for-next testing branch if there are no objections.

* V1:

this is an initial, more or less serious attempt to collect decoded
MCE info into a buffer and jettison it into userspace using the MCE
tracepoint trace_mce_record(). This initial approach needs userspace to
do

$ echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/ras/agent

and decoded MCE info gets collected into a buffer. Then, when decoding
is finished, the tracepoint is called and the MCE info along with the
decoded information lands in the ring buffer and at possible userspace
consumers.

Also, the commit messages of the single patches contain additional info.

For example, the data looks like this:
