+ mce=bios_cmci_threshold
+ Don't overwrite the bios-set CMCI threshold. This boot option
+ prevents Linux from overwriting the CMCI threshold set by the
+ bios. Without this option, Linux always sets the CMCI
+ threshold to 1. Enabling this may make memory predictive failure
+ analysis less effective if the bios sets thresholds for memory
+ errors since we will not see details for all errors.
