[PATCH 4/8] x86/mce/AMD: Do not perform shared bank check for future processors

From: Borislav Petkov
Date: Mon Jan 25 2016 - 14:44:11 EST

From: Aravind Gopalakrishnan <Aravind.Gopalakrishnan@xxxxxxx>

Fam17h and above should not require a check to see if a bank is shared
or not. For shared banks, there will always be only one core that has
visibility over the MSRs and only that particular core will be allowed
to write to the MSRs.

Fix the code to return early if we have Scalable MCA support. No change
in functionality for earlier processors.

Boris: Fold in fix from kbuild test robot for:

arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce_amd.c:93:9-10: WARNING: return of 0/1 in function 'is_shared_bank' with return type bool
