HWPOISON: Clean up memory_failure() vs. __memory_failure()
There is only one caller of memory_failure(), all other users call __memory_failure() and pass in the flags argument explicitly. The lone user of memory_failure() will soon need to pass flags too. Add flags argument to the callsite in mce.c. Delete the old memory_failure() function, and then rename __memory_failure() without the leading "__". Provide clearer message when action optional memory errors are ignored. Acked-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@amd64.org> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
