Hi james,
  sorry to disturb you!

  do you think whether we need to set the guest ESR by user space?  if need, I need to
notify user space that there is a SError happen and need to set ESR for guest in some place of
KVM. so here I return a error code to user space. you mean we should not pass RAS notifications
to user space, so could you give some suggestion how to notify user space to set guest ESR.

Thanks a lot in advance.
