[PATCH 3.14 16/37] EDAC: i7core, sb_edac: Dont return NOTIFY_BAD from mce_decoder callback

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

3.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tony Luck <tony.luck@xxxxxxxxx>

commit c4fc1956fa31003bfbe4f597e359d751568e2954 upstream.

Both of these drivers can return NOTIFY_BAD, but this terminates
processing other callbacks that were registered later on the chain.
Since the driver did nothing to log the error it seems wrong to prevent
other interested parties from seeing it. E.g. neither of them had even
bothered to check the type of the error to see if it was a memory error
before the return NOTIFY_BAD.
