Subject: [PATCH v2] x86/mce: Don't participate in rendezvous process once nmi_shootdown_cpus() was made

We met an issue for kdump: after kdump kernel boots up,
and there comes a broadcasted mce in first kernel, the
other cpus remaining in first kernel will enter the old
mce handler of first kernel, then timeout and panic due
to MCE synchronization, finally reset the kdump cpus.

This patch lets cpus stay quiet after nmi_shootdown_cpus(),
so before crash cpu shots them down or after kdump boots,
they should not do anything except clearing MCG_STATUS
in case of broadcasted mce. This is useful for kdump
to let the vmcore dumping perform as hard as it can.
