[PATCH 1/4] x86, mce: Enable MCA support by default

From: Borislav Petkov
Date: Fri Oct 07 2011 - 11:28:23 EST

From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@xxxxxxx>

MCA is the most basic support for hardware error collection and
reporting, and it is majorly unwise to run without it so enable machine
check software support by default on x86.

kernel if it detects a problem (e.g. overheating, data corruption).
