Do you mean in x86_mcinfo_dump(), or mc_panic(), or yet somewhere
else? In any event if we did so I'd want to arrange for each PPIN
to get logged at most once, to reduce unnecessary redundancy. Of
course there's a comment ahead of x86_mcinfo_dump() mentioning
that the output is to be parseable by mcelog, so I'm not sure if
we can reasonably change what we produce. Otoh I'm also not sure
the comment hasn't become stale with its (presumed) porting from
Linux anyway.
