I agree with Borislav that kexec shouldn't start at all because we can't guarantee
a stable system anymore when MCE is reported.
On the other hand, I understand there are people like Andi who want to start kexec
even if MCE occurred.
That is why I propose adding a new option controlling kexec behaviour when MCE occurred.
I don't stick to "sysctl".
I suggest to add a new boot parameter instead of sysctl because users can't change
their configuration once the boot parameter is set.
I will resend the patch if it is acceptable.
