[PATCH 1/4] ACPI, APEI, GHES, Prevent GHES to be built as module

From: Huang Ying
Date: Tue Jun 21 2011 - 03:17:30 EST

GHES (Generic Hardware Error Source) is used to process hardware error
notification in firmware first mode. But because firmware first mode
can be turned on but can not be turned off, it is unreasonable to
unload the GHES module with firmware first mode turned on. To avoid
confusion, this patch makes GHES can be enable/disable in
configuration time, but not built as module and unload at run time.
