What is "copy_mc" supposed to mean? Especially if it is called that on
two arches...

X86_MCE is dropped here. So if I have a build which has

# CONFIG_X86_MCE is not set

One of those quirks like:

/*
* CAPID0{7:6} indicate whether this is an advanced RAS SKU
* CAPID5{8:5} indicate that various NVDIMM usage modes are
* enabled, so memory machine check recovery is also enabled.
*/
if ((capid0 & 0xc0) == 0xc0 || (capid5 & 0x1e0))
enable_copy_mc_fragile();

will still call enable_copy_mc_fragile() and none of those platforms
need MCE functionality?

But there's a hunk in here which sets it in the MCE code:

if (mca_cfg.recovery)
enable_copy_mc_fragile();

So which is it? They need it or they don't?

The comment over copy_mc_to_kernel() says:

* Call into the 'fragile' version on systems that have trouble
* actually do machine check recovery

If CONFIG_X86_MCE is not set, I'll say. :)

One "that" is enough.
