Ah, thanks for the reminder.

/me goes and dusts it off.

Ok, here it is, injecting some MCEs in a guest seems to work fine,
mcelog logs them.

Subject: [PATCH] x86/mcelog: Get rid of RCU remnants

/dev/mcelog is called in process context now as part of the notifier
chain and doesn't need any of the fancy RCU and lockless accesses which
it did in atomic context.

Axe it all in favor of a simple mutex synchronization.
