| OOps. I actually had this in my commit message, but it disappeared mysteriously:
|
| In particular, the errors we do this for are:
|
| - Send CS error
| - Send accept error
| - Send illegal vector
| - Illegal register address
|
| (The error codes are listed in a comment just above the code in
| question.)
|
| But if these definitions exist, then I will use them. Thanks!

iirc, they all were there (though some error codes are specific for
particular processor classes like P4, pentium and other - don't remeber
you could check intel dev manual for this).
