SubjectRE: [PATCH 2/6] x86-mce: Modify CMCI storm exit to reenable instead of rediscover banks.
> The CMCI storm handler previously called cmci_reenable() when exiting a
> CMCI storm. However, when entering a CMCI storm the bank ownership was
> not relinquished by the affected CPUs. The CMCIs were only disabled via
> cmci_storm_disable_banks(). The handler was updated to instead call a

> owned banks instead of rediscovering CMCI banks (which were still owned
> but disabled).

Won't this cause problems if we online a cpu during the storm. We will
re-run the discovery algorithm and some other cpu that shares the bank
will see MCi_CTL2{30} is zero and claim ownership.
