I am not sending hardware error reporting infrastructure. As far as I
know, Linus and Andrew suggest to use printk for hardware error
reporting. And now, I just try to write APEI driver and reporting
hardware error with printk. Is it acceptable? Do you have some other
idea about hardware error reporting?

As for llist, I just want to send some code that is useful for not
only RAS users. If it has not any user except APEI driver, I will
move it into APEI driver code.
