Subject[PATCH] Fix Athlon MCA
on boot I'm seeing a lot of messages like this:

MCE: The hardware reports a non fatal, correctable incident occurred on CPU 0.
Bank 0: d47fa0000000bfee

This messages go away if I revert cset 1.1119.9.1. AFAIK you were trying
to decrease the logging level. After reading IA32 Architecture Software
Developers Manual, vol3 - chapter 14.5 "Machine-Check Initialization" I
think that the right way to do it is this:

wrmsr (MSR_IA32_MC0_STATUS+4*i, 0x0, 0x0);

We really want to clean all MC*_STATUS. I'm currently running linux 2.6.0-t5
+ this patch and I don't see the MCE messages on boot anymore.

accadra` domani, la prossima settimana, il prossimo mese e
l'anno prossimo. E di essere cosi` abili, piu` tardi,
da spiegare perche' non e` accaduto."
