    Subject[PATCH 07/17] ACPI, APEI, GHES, Prevent GHES to be built as module
    GHES (Generic Hardware Error Source) is used to process hardware error
    notification in firmware first mode. But because firmware first mode
    can be turned on but can not be turned off, it is unreasonable to
    unload the GHES module with firmware first mode turned on. To avoid
    confusion, this patch makes GHES can be enabled/disabled in
    configuration time, but not built as module and unloaded at run time.
