Subject[PATCH v2 3/7] x86/mce: Add new "kflags" field to "struct mce"
Date
There can be many different subsystems register on the mce handler
chain. Add a new bitmask field and define values so that handlers
can indicate whether they took any action to log or otherwise
handle an error.

The default handler at the end of the chain can use this information
to decide whether to print to the console log.

Boris suggested a generic name and leaving plenty of spare bits
for possible future use.
