OK, I drop it.

print_mce() doesn't help?

Currently quirk_no_way_out() is set only for a specific CPU model, so even
if we define another callback for kdump code, setting it to a real function
need to be done in MCE internal function, __mcheck_cpu_apply_quirks() ?

It seems that in this version I relied on reusing exisiting code too much.
So I'll do only what I really need. Then, if the model specific behavior
(what quirk_sandybridge_ifu() does) doesn't affect machine_check_under_kdump()'s
behavior, simply stop copying this part is a right thing to do?

Other than that, I'm OK to write in the simplified form.
