I considered this more carefully. It should be better to use the length instead of 'err_info', than
just break out. Because if we want to expand "ARM Processor Error Infomation Structure", the proper way
is just add some new member at the end of the structure. Then we have a chance to work well for the situation
of new firmware + old kernel.
