Subject[PATCH v2 6/6] x86/mce: Dynamically register default MCE handler
Date
The default MCE handler takes action, when no external MCE handler is
registered. Instead of checking for external handlers within the default
MCE handler, only register the default MCE handler when there are no
external handlers in the first place.

New in v2. This is something that became possible due to patch 4.
I'm not entirely happy with it.

One the one hand, I'm wondering whether there's a nicer way to handle
(de-)registration races.

On the other hand, I'm starting to question the whole logic to "only print
the MCE if nothing else in the kernel has a handler registered". Is that
really how it should be? For example, there are handlers that filter for a
specific subset of MCEs. If one of those is registered, we're losing all
information for MCEs that don't match.

A possible solution to the latter would be to have a "handled" or "printed"
flag within "struct mce" and print the MCE based on that in the default
handler. What do you think?
