Subject[PATCH -v2 2/2] x86, MCE: Drop the default decoding notifier
Date
From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@amd.com>

The default notifier doesn't make a lot of sense to call in the
correctable errors case. Drop it and emit the mcelog decoding hint only
in the uncorrectable errors case and when no notifier is registered.
Also, limit issuing the "mcelog --ascii" message in the rare case when
we dump unreported CEs before panicking.

While at it, remove unused old x86_mce_decode_callback from the header.
