SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] x86/mce: Provide sysfs interface to show CMCI storm state

There are corner cases where the CE count is 0 when a storm occurs.  EDAC completely missed logging CEs.

I think the problem is knowing that many errors are being missed because
of the switch to poll mode. All methods to track errors, including the trace_mce_record()
technique are equally affected by missed errors.

But maybe Chris can better describe what the problem is ...
