If the bug is almost certainly between 23736 and 23741 inclusive, then it
*has* to be one of 23736/23737. Which are both by the same author (Jinsong
Liu @ Intel) and both concern machine-check support: quite vendor-specific
and high risk for breaking other vendors. So you can just confirm it's one
of those two and then punt the problem to Jinsong...
