Subject[RFC PATCH 3/4] acpi: apei: Do not panic() in NMI because of GHES messages
Date
BIOSes like to send NMIs for a number of silly reasons often deemed
to be "fatal". For example pin bounce during a PCIE hotplug/unplug
might cause the link to go down and retrain, with fatal PCI errors
being generated while the link is retraining.

Instead of panic()ing in NMI context, pass fatal errors down to IRQ
context to see if they can be resolved.

With these change, PCIe error are handled by AER. Other far less
common errors, such as machine check exceptions, still cause a panic()
in their respective handlers.
