Subject[PATCH 2/3] x86/mce/therm_throt: allow disabling verbose logging
Date
There is an enormous amount of fiddly book keeping and an auxiliary
workqueue just for the purpose of ratelimiting and reliably printing
messages regarding thermal events and throttling, which uses CPU in a
rather common interrupt. Add an option to disable this verbose
reporting.
