Gmane
From: Andi Kleen <andi <at> firstfloor.org>
Subject: [PATCH] [0/28] x86: MCE: Feature series for 2.6.31
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 7th April 2009 15:07:39 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Various new Intel x86 machine check features, including initial support
for machine check recovery and new status bits. The actual machine check
recovery requires some generic VM changes, which will be posted in a
separate
series ("POISON series") This series can be applied without the POISON
series and POISON requires these patches.

Especially the broadcast and early nowayout patches are fairly important
for 
Nehalem CPUs, without them machine checks are often incorrectly reported
due to the shared bank topology of the system.
