They're not in the kernel log if it's an MCE that causes the kernel to declare
a panic. There's some MCE's that you can retry the operation and continue, and
some that you can get away with poisoning a page, killing the process, and rest
of the system is OK. But some you really need to roll over and die because you
can't guarantee kernel integrity anymore.

And at that point, those messages are never gonna make it to syslogd and onto
