Subject: Re: [tip:x86/urgent] x86/mce: Ensure offline CPUs don' t participate
 in rendezvous process

Hi Ashok,
I have two questions about this patch, could you help to check:

1, for broadcast #MC exceptions, this patch seems require #MC exception errors
set MCG_STATUS_RIPV = 1. 
But for Intel CPU, some #MC exception errors set MCG_STATUS_RIPV = 0 
(like "Recoverable-not-continuable SRAR Type" Errors), for these errors
the patch doesn't seem to work, is that okay?

2, for LMCE exceptions, this patch seems require #MC exception errors
set MCG_STATUS_RIPV = 0 to make sure LMCE be handled normally even
on offline CPU. 
For LMCE errors set MCG_STAUS_RIPV = 1, the patch prevents offline CPU
handle these LMCE errors, is that okay?

Thanks
Tony W Wang-oc
