I removed the apei_estatus_for_each_section because it was only being used in this one spot even though several other parts of the code do the same iteration (it is done several times in the CPER code). I made this iteration match the CPER iterations because the CPER iterations are verifying that the structures are all valid and lengths are correct. If those checks are being done this way, it makes the most sense to mimic that iteration here when calling into EDAC and triggering trace events.

may be directly remove the macro apei_estatus_for_each_section is not better, 
if other place code also
needs to iterate through the GHES estatus blocks, it will be repeated written

I have already posted a patch fixing this. Please see:


This makes the loop identical to the CPER code which prints the estatus blocks 
to the kernel logs.

The revision 0x300 generic error data entry is different with the old
version. when ghes_do_proc traverses to get the data entry, it does not
consider this difference. so when error status block has revision 0x300
data entry, it will have issue.
