[PATCH 2/5] ppc/spapr: Improve FWNMI machine check delivery corner case


From: Nicholas Piggin
Subject: [PATCH 2/5] ppc/spapr: Improve FWNMI machine check delivery corner case comments
Date: Tue, 17 Mar 2020 15:02:12 +1000

Some of the conditions are not as clearly documented as they could be.
Also the non-FWNMI case does not need a large comment.
