Description of problem:
On the x86 platform when there is a corrected MCE error it prints the following messages:
Mar 29 17:52:19 server1 kernel: [Hardware Error]: No human readable MCE decoding support on this CPU type.
Mar 29 17:52:19 server1 kernel: [Hardware Error]: Run the message through 'mcelog --ascii' to decode.
It should however only print them in case of a panic as per the upstream commit:
The "human readable" message is not useful for corrected
errors. There's no reason to run mcelog --ascii and the
error is logged anyways. And it's pr_emerg, which is not
needed for a corrected error.
Only print it during panic.
These messages are confusing to the less experienced admin.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On a system installed with RHEL-6.1 beta with correctable MCE errors you will see these messages.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a machine with RHEL-6.1 beta
2. Wait for MCE errors to be corrected
The system logs superfluous messages
These messages should only be printed in case of a panic.
