* ACPI, APEI, Error Record Serialization Table (ERST) supportHuang Ying2010-05-191-0/+21
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | ERST is a way provided by APEI to save and retrieve hardware error record to and from some simple persistent storage (such as flash). The Linux kernel support implementation is quite simple and workable in NMI context. So it can be used to save hardware error record into flash in hardware error exception or NMI handler, where other more complex persistent storage such as disk is not usable. After saving hardware error records via ERST in hardware error exception or NMI handler, the error records can be retrieved and logged into disk or network after a clean reboot. For more information about ERST, please refer to ACPI Specification version 4.0, section 17.4. This patch incorporate fixes from Jin Dongming.

* ACPI, APEI, HEST table parsingHuang Ying2010-05-191-0/+13
HEST describes error sources in detail; communicating operational parameters (i.e. severity levels, masking bits, and threshold values) to OS as necessary. It also allows the platform to report error sources for which OS would typically not implement support (for example, chipset-specific error registers). HEST information may be needed by other subsystems. For example, HEST PCIE AER error source information describes whether a PCIE root port works in "firmware first" mode, this is needed by general PCIE AER error subsystem. So a public HEST tabling parsing interface is provided. Signed-off-by: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
