Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] APEI: Make APEI architecture independent.
APEI is currently implemented so that it depends on x86 hardware.
The primary dependency is that GHES uses the x86 NMI for hardware
error notification and MCE for memory error handling. These patches
remove that dependency.

Other APEI features such as error reporting via external IRQ, error
serialization, or error injection, do not require changes to use them
on non-x86 architectures.

The following patch set eliminates the APEI Kconfig x86 dependency
by making these changes:
- treat NMI notification as GHES feature - CONFIG_ACPI_APEI_NMI
- reorganize GHES notification type init/deinitialization
so that we can decide in run time whether NMI is supported or not
- identify architectural boxes and abstract it accordingly (NMI and MCE)
- rework ioremap for both IRQ and NMI context

NMI code is kept in ghes.c file since NMI and IRQ context are tightly coupled.

Note, these patches introduce no functional changes for x86. The NMI notification
feature is selected for x86 by default. Architectures that want to use this
feature should also provide NMI code infrastructure.

- address Borislav comment
- abstract arch-specific calls instead of wrapping into the #ifdef

Tomasz Nowicki (5):
apei, mce: Factor out APEI architecture specific MCE calls.
acpi, apei, ghes: Introduce ACPI_APEI_NMI to make NMI error
notification a GHES feature.
acpi, apei, ghes: Introduce more generic mechanism to init/deinit
GHES error notifications.
apei, ghes, nmi: Factor out NMI arch-specific calls.
acpi, apei, ghes: Factor out ioremap virtual memory for IRQ and NMI
