This structure contains some common information like crashed CPU, number of 
reserved entry and then result table.  So exporting it as single property makes 
it easy.
Kernel can just read this property and get complete information.

Another reason is this is similar to the way we get information on PowerVM LPAR.

Hence added as single property.
