Agreed. We can tackle the whole machine check complex later, especially
as it also has implications for interacting with user space.

The PoP says "Condition code 3 is set, and no other action is taken" -
I'd interpret this as "no content is changed, but you probably should
not look at that storage area". I'd hope that the caller does not look
at the contents for cc 3, but it's a good idea to document this.

Yes, that's what I meant. Whatever makes the code easy to understand.
