ACPI, APEI, APEI supporting infrastructure
APEI stands for ACPI Platform Error Interface, which allows to report errors (for example from the chipset) to the operating system. This improves NMI handling especially. In addition it supports error serialization and error injection. For more information about APEI, please refer to ACPI Specification version 4.0, chapter 17. This patch provides some common functions used by more than one APEI tables, mainly framework of interpreter for EINJ and ERST. A machine readable language is defined for EINJ and ERST for OS to execute, and so to drive the firmware to fulfill the corresponding functions. The machine language for EINJ and ERST is compatible, so a common framework is defined for them.
