NOTIFY_STOP is just one mechanism for preventing every function
on the mce chain from reporting an error.

The other bit I'd like to reconsider is edac_get_report_status().
Back in the day we seemed to be paranoid about reporting the same
error more than once via all the different reporting mechanisms.

Since then I've had to track down numerous "Why didn't this error
get reported?" questions that frequently resolved to "It was reported,
but not in the place that you expected".

So now my attitude is "Let's just log it everywhere in so that
whatever log the user is checking, they'll find the error".
