Subject[Patch V1 3/3] x86, mce: Handling LMCE events
Date
This patch has handling changes to do_machine_check() to process MCE
signaled as local MCE. Typically only recoverable errors (SRAR) type
error will be Signaled as LMCE. But architecture does not restrict to
only those errors.

When errors are signaled as LMCE, there is no need for the MCE handler to
perform rendezvous with other logical processors unlike earlier processors
that would broadcast machine check errors.

See http://www.intel.com/sdm Volume 3, Chapter 15 for more information
on MSR's and documentation on Local MCE.
