One of our architecture guys pointed out that the stacked registers
should still be intact at the OS_MCA and OS_INIT handoffs.  They
are unchanged in the PALE_CHECK and PALE_INIT exit state (I finally
found this buried in the RSE description), and the OS_MCA and OS_INIT
handoff state is defined to be the same for stacked registers.

So I assume your proposal is to address the fact that we don't
actually save the error records until after a reboot, and the
stacked register contents are gone by then.  Right?
