James, let check the code, when the ghes_probe, if the CONFIG_ACPI_APEI_SEA is not defined.
it will return -ENOTSUPP and goto error, and the ghes_sea_add has no chance to execute.
similar, if the probe is failed, it should not have chance to execute ghes_sea_remove.

static int ghes_probe(struct platform_device *ghes_dev)
{
struct acpi_hest_generic *generic;
struct ghes *ghes = NULL;

int rc = -EINVAL;

generic = *(struct acpi_hest_generic **)ghes_dev->dev.platform_data;
if (!generic->enabled)
return -ENODEV;

switch (generic->notify.type) {
case ACPI_HEST_NOTIFY_POLLED:
case ACPI_HEST_NOTIFY_EXTERNAL:
case ACPI_HEST_NOTIFY_SCI:
case ACPI_HEST_NOTIFY_GSIV:
case ACPI_HEST_NOTIFY_GPIO:
break;

case ACPI_HEST_NOTIFY_SEA:
if (!IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ACPI_APEI_SEA)) {
pr_warn(GHES_PFX "Generic hardware error source: %d notified via SEA is not supported\n",
generic->header.source_id);
rc = -ENOTSUPP;
goto err;
}
break;

previously I added the NOTIFY_SEI support, but consider the error address in CPER is not accurate and calling memory_failure() may not make sense.
so I remove it.

For the SEI notification, may be we can parse and handle the CPER record other than the Error physical address
