Looks good.

But I have one more question (for intel possibly):
- If identifiers in cache_check and bus_check are different,
   the cache's always takes priority and the bus's will be ignored.
   Are there any opposite case, such as a case of error log that have
   corrected cache_checks with ignorable identifiers and an uncorrected
   bus_check with significant identifier?

I guess if both are significant it would be separated double MCA,
or should be reset by SAL/platform.
