Subject[PATCH] x86/mcheck/therm_throt.c: Don't log power limit and package level thermal throttle event in mce log
Date
From: Fenghua Yu <fenghua.yu@intel.com>

Because of BIOS issues, some platforms report mce errors after power limit and
thermal throttle events. Customers are concerned about the mce errors. Although
BIOS need to fix the issues eventually, the events should not be viewed as mce
errors in the first place.

This patch doesn't log power limit and package level thermal throttle events
in mce log. When the events happen, only count them in respective counters in
sysfs.

For legacy reason, core level thermal throttle is still logged in mce log and
counted in counter in sysfs.
