Subject[PATCH 3/7] ia64, kexec: Unregister MCA handler before kexec
We cannot handle machine check errors during kernel transition.
To avoid entering MCA handler from early stage of new kernel, unregister
the entry point from SAL before leave from current kernel.
Then SAL will make all MCAs to warmboot safely.
