SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 3/7] acpi: apei: remove the unused code

This doesn't match what the patch does. I get this feeling this is needed for
some future patch you haven't included.

Setting NOTIFY_SEI as the GHES entry's notification type means the OS should
check the GHES->ErrorStatusAddress for CPER records when it receives an
SError-Interrupt, as it may be a notification of an error from this error source.

If you aren't handling the notification, why is this is in the HEST at all?
(and if its not: its not firmware-first)
