But I wonder whether we actually want two chains. We've been adding a bunch
of general run-time logging and recovery stuff to this chain. So now we have
things there that aren't needed or useful in the panic case. E.g.
srao_decode_notifier() (which tries to offline a page that reported an
uncorrected error out of the execution path) and Boris's new CEC code.
