SubjectRE: [PATCH v2 0/8] Decode IA32/X64 CPER

Intel gives OEMs lots of options to catch and tweak the error path in
BIOS SMM code. So it is possible that some systems may go into
BIOS which would do platform level analysis and create a CPER to
feed to the OS. Hopefully anyone doing that would clear the machine
check bank and suppress CMCI to avoid double reporting the same
error.

Good point.

Nothing solid yet.

It's on a mental list ... I should probably add it to our internal
trackers so that we actually do it sooner rather than in some
distant future.
