My pdf says this is table 252.

Ok, that processor error record has a variable length structure at byte
offset 64 and we don't have it in this struct.

I guess I'll see it in the following patches but right now it looks
like that "Processor Error Info" thing is simply situated after that
Processor Error Record so we are supposed to simply find the info at
offset 64...
