SubjectRe: [v5 5/6] powerpc/mce: Handle UE event for memcpy_mcsafe

So... what happens if we take a machine check while we happen to be
executing some other kernel operation with a fixup entry?

Or the other way around, what happens if memcpy_mcsafe takes a page
fault for some reason (e.g., kernel bug it tries to access unmapped
memory).

Thanks,
Nick
