[PATCH 1/3] x86, MCE: Do not taint when correctable errors

From: Borislav Petkov
Date: Wed Apr 13 2011 - 09:37:22 EST

From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@xxxxxxx>

Correctable errors are considered something rather normal on modern
hardware these days. Even more importantly, correctable errors mean
exactly that - they've been corrected by the hardware - and there's no
need to taint the kernel since execution hasn't been compromised so far.
