Subject[PATCH 3/3] x86/mce: include type of core when reporting a machine check error
In hybrid parts, each type of core reports different types of machine check
errors as the machine check error blocks are tied to different parts of the
hardware. Furthermore, errors may be different across micro-architecture
versions. Thus, in order to decode errors, userspace tools need to know the
type of core as well as the native model ID of the CPU which reported the

This extra information is only included in the error report only when
running on hybrid parts. This conserves the existing behavior when running
on non-hybrid parts. Hence, legacy userspace tools running on new kernels
and hybrid hardware can still understand the format of the reported error
