[Xen-devel] machine check report on HVM startup


When I launch  memtest as HVM guest, then Xen sends tons of VIRQ_MCA events
to the Dom0, although there occured NO correctable machine check errors.
When the Dom0 tries to fetch the error telemetry, then the

BUG_ON(mc_data.fetch_idx > mc_data.error_idx); in x86_mcinfo_getfetchptr()
in xen/arch/x86/cpu/mcheck/mce.c is hit. (x86_mcinfo_getfetchptr() only works
if actually real error occured which is not the case.)

This looks to me, there's a non-public event channel using the same number
as VIRQ_MCA which fires when  launching memtest as HVM guest.
