Add a new "M" tainted bit in oopses for machine checks.

This shows in a oops when the machine had already a machine check.
That information may be useful to see if the machine has hardware
trouble and if it's really worth to invest much time into a
mysterious oops.

Support for i386 and x86-64 so far.
