When a memory uncorrected error is triggered by process A who accessed
the address with error; It's Action Required Case for only current
process which triggered this.this Action Required case means Action
optional to other process who share the same page. Usually, kill current
process will be sufficient, other process sharing the same page will
get be signaled when they really touch the poisoned page.

But there is another scenario that other processes
sharing the same page want to be signaled early with PF_MCE_EARLY set,
In this case, we should get them into kill list and signal
BUS_MCEERR_AO to them.

So in this patch, task_early_kill will check current process if
force_early is set, and if not current,check find_early_kill_thread
to see if there is PF_MCE_EARLY process which cares the error.

In kill_proc, BUS_MCEERR_AR is only send to current, other process in
kill list will be signaled BUS_MCEERR_AO.

"Reviewed-by" tag has some special meaning in Linux kernel development,
and that should be tagged explicitly by reviewers. So please wait a little
more to add this :)

Sorry for my unclearness, I meant to ask for updating the comment below (especially
"Note that ..." part), which gets obsolete by your patch.
