Michael, as far as I understand (Russel and Gavin surely knows better 
and can correct me if I'm wrong) the only consumer that doesn't just 
output the error information to screen is pseries' get_log handler, 
which will pass this log information through a rtas_call 

Now, I imagine this information might be consumed in the end for the 
FSP, by reporting EEH errors there, but my testing in one LPAR showed me 
no errors in FSP after an EEH (without the patch applied). Maybe I'm 
missing a FSP configuration to be able to show the errors there?
