For most (desktop) users "errors" will be shown by default, and if anyone is having trouble, they can temporarily remove "quiet" from the kernel command line while debugging it, so it's easy. On the other hand, I don't think it's possible to silence the emergency messages (and I'd still like to see them for any "something is on fire").

The only other use of `pr_emerg_ratelimited` seems to be an informational message shown on non-AMD MCEs ("run mcelog --ascii"). `pr_emerg` is used in more places, but they do sound like critical situations that will bring the system down anyway.

In my case, it's latest BIOS version available. Could be AGESA-related, maybe we could install a no-op handler for that IRQ?

PS: I now see that this was reported a lot of times, including e.g.
