Do you expect that the driver will need to mark pages with high
correctable error counts as bad? I think the hardware folks may want the
GPU memory errors to be handled more aggressively than CPU memory
errors. The specific threshold may change from product to product, so it
may make sense to hardcode this in the driver.

We have similar functionality in the Correctable Errors Collector. But
enterprise users may prefer a direct approach done in the driver (based
on the hardware experts' guidance) instead of configuring the kernel at

So I think having a separate priority may make sense if some special
functionality, or combination of behaviors, is needed which don't fall
under any exisiting things. In this case, "special functionality" could
be that the GPU memory needs to be handled differently than CPU memory.

Another thing is that this behavior is similar to the NFIT behavior,
i.e. there's a memory error on an external device that needs to be
handled by the device's driver. So maybe we can rename MCE_PRIO_NFIT to
be generic (MCE_PRIO_EXTERNAL?) and use that? Multiple notifiers with
the same priority is okay, right?
