Subject[PATCH] ACPI/APEI: Add BERT data driver
Date
From: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>

The ACPI Boot Error Record Table provides a method for platform
firmware to give information to the operating system about error
that occurred prior to boot (of particular interest are problems
that caused the previous OS instance to crash).

The BERT table simply provides the size and address of the error
record in BIOS reserved memory. In an earlier age we might have
used /dev/mem to retrieve this error record, but many systems
disable /dev/mem for security reasons.

This driver provides read-only access to the data via a character
special device "/dev/bert-data".
