Michael Ellerman - June 28, 2013, 8:15 a.m.
A mistake we have made in the past is that we pull out the fields we
need from the event code, but don't check that there are no unknown bits
set. This means that we can't ever assign meaning to those unknown bits
in future.

Although we have once again failed to do this at release, it is still
early days for Power8 so I think we can still slip this in and get away
with it.
