    Well, the mce.c is not involved anymore. So if it we are piggybacking
    on the native MCE handling routines - those routines (do_machine_check)
    won't deliever the data to your driver anymore? B/c the do_machine_check
    is doing mce_log which spools data. But your driver is using a different
    system to de-spool the data - and it does not use the mcelog structure
    array.

    I've no idea what you mean here. Could you elaborate please?
