No.  If the object is to make the severity AER_FATAL, you should just
do that.  You shouldn't fiddle around with the CPER severity, because
then you depend on the mapping performed by cper_severity_to_aer().

In other words, something like the patch below.  I don't really care
if you use the original "if" above that only sets aer_severity once,
or if you overwrite it as below.  I overwrote it because it doesn't
wrap as many lines.  ghes_do_proc() really should just call helpers
so the interesting code doesn't have to be indented three and four
tab stops.


ACPI/APEI: Force fatal AER severity when component has been reset
    
The CPER error record has a reset bit that indicates that the platform has
reset the component.  The reset bit can be set for any severity error
including recoverable.  From the AER code path's perspective, any error is
fatal if the component has been reset. This patch upgrades the severity of
the AER recovery to AER_FATAL in this case.

The patch looks good to me.
