[PATCH v2 8/9] ACPI, APEI, CPER: Cleanup CPER memory error output format
[PATCH v2 9/9] ACPI / trace: Add trace interface for eMCA driver

This patch series adds an enhanced MCA event logging driver provided by Intel.
Please refer to this link: htpp://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/enhanced-mca-logging-xeon-paper.html

Certain usages such as Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) require more
information about the error than what can be described in processor
machine check banks. Most server processors log additional information
about the error in processor uncore registers. Since the addresses
and layout of these registers vary widely from one processor to another,
system software cannot readily make use of them. To complicate matters
further, some of the additionalerror information cannot be constructed
without detailed knowledge about platform topology. This enhanced MCA
logging driver allows firmware to provide additional error information
to MCE/CMCI handler and thus addresses this gap.

After applying this patch series, when a memory corrected error happens,
we can get following information:

dmesg output:

dmesg output format has been updated based on the suggestion from Boris.
For trace output format we still need further discussion. In the last
patch(support trace interface) I have to reserve previous Kconfig format
because I find once I put trace_event interface in the module, it will
not work. I will paste another trace patch(it only works when acpi_extlog is
builtin) for your answer.
