UEFI spec allows for non-standard section in Common Platform Error
Record. This is defined in section N.2.3 of UEFI version 2.5.

Currently if the CPER section's type (UUID) does not match with
one of the section types that the kernel knows how to parse, the
section is skipped. Therefore, user is not able to see
such CPER data, for instance, error record of non-standard section.

For above mentioned case, this change prints out the raw data in
hex in dmesg buffer. Data length is taken from Error Data length
field of Generic Error Data Entry.

Following is a sample output from dmesg:
[  115.771702] {1}[Hardware Error]: Hardware error from APEI Generic Hardware Error Source: 2
[  115.779042] {1}[Hardware Error]: It has been corrected by h/w and requires no further action
