Subject[PATCH 4.20 238/352] ACPI/APEI: Clear GHES block_status before panic()
Date
4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 98cff8b23ed1c763a029ee81ea300df0d153d07d ]

In __ghes_panic() clear the block status in the APEI generic
error status block for that generic hardware error source before
calling panic() to prevent a second panic() in the crash kernel
for exactly the same fatal error.

Otherwise ghes_probe(), running in the crash kernel, would see
an unhandled error in the APEI generic error status block and
panic again, thereby precluding any crash dump.
