Subject[PATCH] Bug fix: Clear ack of GHES table which contain wrong Error status block, let new error can fill GHES table.
Current Error status block processing flow, if wrong format is checked,
GHES table ack is not cleared.
It will cause new error can not be filled GHES table, because UEFI
need check ack to know if error was handled by OS.

This patch solved issue, no matter Error status block format is wrong,
But GHES table format is corrected, we clear ack.
