SubjectRe: [PATCH v4] cper, apei, mce: Pass x86 CPER through the MCA handling chain
Smita,

pls sync the time of the box where you create the patch:

Date: Fri, 4 Sep 2020 09:04:44 -0500

but your mail headers have:

Received: from ... with mapi id 15.20.3370.019; Fri, 18 Sep 2020 14:49:12 +0000
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

How else would you explain what the Reported-by: tag is for on a patch
which adds a feature?

Good point.

No need if he really wants to use the first MCi_STATUS address.

Well, that was addressed in his reply last time:

https://lkml.kernel.org/r/a28aa613-8353-0052-31f6-34bc733abf59@amd.com

You might've missed it because you weren't CCed directly.
