Unhandled errors should make the *machine* fail-stop, not just one CPU. High
availability is important, but getting the correct answer from your
computations tends to rank higher. If hardware detects an unrecoverable
error that cannot be handled sanely in software either, I think most people
would agree it's time for a reboot.
