SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86/mce: Streamline MCE subsystem's naming

Whatever, this is pure bikeshedding what we're doing right now. All the
errors are reported through the CPU's MCA banks and the argument whether
an error class which is maybe not really tied to the CPU, should dictate
which path to put the files in, does not make any sense to me.

The only argument which makes sense IMO is whether the path should be
short. :-)

And both

arch/x86/cpu/mce/
arch/x86/mce/

are short enough to me.

Now, the real question is, how do we want to place the rest of the
files/folders so that we can get rid of deeper directory structures.

If we say, we don't want to have .../cpu/... and put everything in
arch/x86/ then this answers the above question too.

IMO, of course.
