config ACPI_APEI
bool "ACPI Platform Error Interface (APEI)"
depends on X86
APEI allows to report errors (for example from the chipset)
to the operating system. This improves NMI handling
especially. In addition it supports error serialization and
error injection.
tristate "APEI Generic Hardware Error Source"
depends on ACPI_APEI && X86
select ACPI_HED
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.
tristate "APEI Error INJection (EINJ)"
depends on ACPI_APEI && DEBUG_FS
EINJ provides a hardware error injection mechanism, it is
mainly used for debugging and testing the other parts of
APEI and some other RAS features.
