APEI is just the mechanism that collects the data, not the mechanism
that reports to userspace.

The current implementation is that APEI already reports those errors
via ghes_edac driver. It also reports the very same error via MCE
(although the APEI interface to MCE is currently broken for everything
that it is not Nehalem-EX - as it basically emulates the MCE log for
that specific architecture).

I really don't see any sense on adding yet-another-way to report the
very same error.

Regards,
Mauro
