Subject[PATCH 18/31] x86: MCE: Store record length into memory struct mce anchor
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

This makes it easier for tools who want to extract the mcelog out of
crash images or memory dumps to adapt to changing struct mce size.
The length field replaces padding, so it's fully compatible.
