Generic Hardware Error Source provides a way to report
platform hardware errors (such as that from chipset). It
works in so called "Firmware First" mode, that is, hardware
errors are reported to firmware firstly, then reported to
Linux by firmware. This way, some non-standard hardware
error registers or non-standard hardware link can be checked
by firmware to produce more valuable hardware error
information for Linux.
