Subject[PATCH 5.1 021/128] x86/MCE: Add an MCE-record filtering function
Date
From: Yazen Ghannam <yazen.ghannam@amd.com>

commit 45d4b7b9cb88526f6d5bd4c03efab88d75d10e4f upstream.

Some systems may report spurious MCA errors. In general, spurious MCA
errors may be disabled by clearing a particular bit in MCA_CTL. However,
clearing a bit in MCA_CTL may not be recommended for some errors, so the
only option is to ignore them.

An MCA error is printed and handled after it has been added to the MCE
event pool. So an MCA error can be ignored by not adding it to that pool
in the first place.

Add such a filtering function.

[ bp: Move function prototype to the internal header and massage. ]
