    [POWERPC] pseries: device node status can be "ok" or "okay"
    It seems that some versions of firmware will report a device
    node status as the string "okay". As we are not expecting this
    string, the device node will be ignored by the EEH subsystem.
    Which means EEH will not be enabled.
    When EEH is not enabled, PCI errors will be converted into
    Machine Check exceptions, and we'll have a very unhappy system.
