SubjectRE: [RFC PATCH 0/7] RAS/CEC: Extend CEC for errors count check on short time period

On Intel X86 we leave the counting and threshold decisions about cache
health to the hardware. When a cache reaches the limit, it logs a "yellow"
status instead of "green" in the machine check bank (error is still marked
as "corrected"). The mcelog(8) daemon may attempt to take CPUs that share
that cache offline.

See Intel SDM volume 3B "15.4 Enhanced Cache Error Reporting"
