Ok, so I think we should do this, still, as it is exactly what the
recommendation says: read the MSRs even if the valid bits are not set and it
doesn't set any Valid bits to confuse error handling downstream.

This way we'll collect all possible info and then mce_amd.c should stop looking
at the valid bits too and dump whatever has been logged.

Ok?
