James Morse - Dec. 3, 2018, 6:06 p.m.
APEI is unable to do all of its error handling work in nmi-context, so
it defers non-fatal work onto the irq_work queue. arch_irq_work_raise()
sends an IPI to the calling cpu, but this is not guaranteed to be taken
before returning to user-space.

Unless the exception interrupted a context with irqs-masked,
irq_work_run() can run immediately. Otherwise return -EINPROGRESS to
indicate ghes_notify_sea() found some work to do, but it hasn't
finished yet.

With this apei_claim_sea() returning '0' means this external-abort was
also notification of a firmware-first RAS error, and that APEI has
processed the CPER records.

Changes since v6:
 * Added pr_warn() for the EINPROGRESS case so panic-tracebacks show
   'APEI was here'.
 * Tinkered with the commit message

Changes since v2:
 * Removed IS_ENABLED() check, done by the caller unless we have a dummy
   definition.
