    FYI, this commit triggered a -tip test failure:

    arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce-xeon75xx.c: In function 'xeon75xx_mce_init':
    arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce-xeon75xx.c:340: error: implicit declaration of function 'pci_match_id'

    I'm excluding it from tip:master.

    But the bigger problem with this commit is structure of it - or the lack

    It just blindly goes into the direction the MCE code has been going for some
    time, minimally enabling the hardware, ignoring both the new EDAC design and
    the new performance monitoring related design i outlined some time ago.

    Newly introduced MCE code in the x86 tree should be integrated much better
    into existing higher level facilities, not just limp along ignoring life
    outside of its little box. This will have to be addressed before we can
    reintroduce this commit, even if this trivial build failure is addressed.

    I've Cc:-ed a few more interested parties.
