x86/mce: Only restart instruction after machine check recovery if it is safe
Section 188.8.131.52 of the software developer manual has this to say about the
RIPV bit in the IA32_MCG_STATUS register:
RIPV (restart IP valid) flag, bit 0 — Indicates (when set) that program
execution can be restarted reliably at the instruction pointed to by the
instruction pointer pushed on the stack when the machine-check exception
is generated. When clear, the program cannot be reliably restarted at
the pushed instruction pointer.
We need to save the state of this bit in do_machine_check() and use it
in mce_notify_process() to force a signal; even if memory_failure() says
it made a complete recovery ... e.g. replaced a clean LRU page.
