James Morse - Dec. 3, 2018, 6:05 p.m.
The estatus-queue code is currently hidden by the NOTIFY_NMI #ifdefs.
Once NOTIFY_SEA starts using the estatus-queue we can stop hiding
it as each architecture has a user that can't be turned off.

Split the existing CONFIG_HAVE_ACPI_APEI_NMI block in two, and move
the SEA code into the gap.

This patch moves code around ... and changes the stale comment
describing why the status queue is necessary: printk() is no
longer the issue, its the helpers like memory_failure_queue() that
aren't nmi safe.
