SubjectRe: [PATCH 7/8] ACPI, APEI, CPER: Cleanup CPER memory error output format

It is not about whether it is important or not - the question is whether
changing existing functionality which someone might rely upon is a
problem here? Someone might be expecting exactly those messages to
appear in dmesg.

Btw, what is the real reason for this patch, to save yourself the output
in dmesg? If so, you can disable this output when eMCA module has been
loaded but leave it intact otherwise.


Sent from a fat crate under my desk. Formatting is fine.
