yes, that is why I try to use "#if defined(__i386__) ||
defined(__x86_64__)" instead of moving acpi_disable_cmcff out of x86
code to here.
And I thinks we also can do "arch_apei_enable_cmcff" -->
"apei_enable_ia_cmcff" because that is IA32 only.
Please correct me if I misunderstand something. Thanks :-)
Great thanks for your feedback :-)
