    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.

    Thanks.
