Subject: [PATCH v3 6/6] x86/MCE: Treat MCE bank as initialized if control bits
 set in hardware

From: Yazen Ghannam <yazen.ghannam@....com>

The OS is expected to write all bits to MCA_CTL for each bank. However,
some banks may be unused in which case the registers for such banks are
Read-as-Zero/Writes-Ignored. Also, the OS may not write any control bits
because of quirks, etc.

A bank can be considered uninitialized if the MCA_CTL register returns
zero. This is because either the OS did not write anything or because
the hardware is enforcing RAZ/WI for the bank.

Set a bank's init value based on if the control bits are set or not in
hardware.

Return an error code in the sysfs interface for uninitialized banks.
