Hi Rafael,

Thanks for the off-list help in getting you this info.

I had already rebuilt the kernel using the change I mentioned earlier (test on
!&g->error_status_address) since the call trace I got.

I luckily still had a copy of the kernel and modules I built previously using
just your patch, so I undid my change to the ghes.c source, leaving just your
patch but not mine so it would match the ghes.ko module I ran on. This is the
output of gdb on that ghes.ko now:

(gdb) l *ghes_read_estatus+0x38
0x258 is in ghes_read_estatus (drivers/acpi/apei/ghes.c:296).
warning: Source file is more recent than executable.
291 int rc;
292 if (!g)
293 return -EINVAL;
294
295 rc = acpi_atomic_read(&buf_paddr, &g->error_status_address);
296 if (rc) {
297 if (!silent && printk_ratelimit())
298 pr_warning(FW_WARN GHES_PFX
299 "Failed to read error status block address for hardware error source:
%d.\n",
300 g->header.source_id);
The warning about the source being newer is because of the reverted change in
the ghes.c source mentioned above.

Thanks,
Rick
