Err, I don't get it: patch 1/5 says:

"So keep the [TIF_MCE_NOTIFY] flag for such possible future use, until
better mechanism is introduced."

and here you remove it. AFAIR, last time we agreed on the irq_work ->
realtime recovery thread approach so why not drop this flag in patch 1/5
and forget this one.
