Where did the explanatory comment go?

+/*
+ * PCIe AER errors need to be sent to the AER driver for reporting and
+ * recovery. The GHES severities map to the following AER severities and
+ * require the following handling:
+ *
+ * GHES_SEV_CORRECTABLE -> AER_CORRECTABLE
+ *     These need to be reported by the AER driver but no recovery is
+ *     necessary.
+ * GHES_SEV_RECOVERABLE -> AER_NONFATAL
+ * GHES_SEV_RECOVERABLE && CPER_SEC_RESET -> AER_FATAL
+ *     These both need to be reported and recovered from by the AER driver.
+ * GHES_SEV_PANIC does not make it to this handling since the kernel must
+ *     panic.
