Sure. I reckon your English grammar is better than mine, is this better?: | In any NMI-like handler, memory from ghes_estatus_pool is used to save | estatus, and added to the ghes_estatus_llist. irq_work_queue() causes | ghes_proc_in_irq() to run in IRQ context where each estatus in | ghes_estatus_llist are processed. Each NMI-like error source must grow | the ghes_estatus_pool to ensure memory is available.
