Since there's a non negligible probability that the output
of this driver is completely misleading because of (2) and (3)
and probably (4) too [reporting the wrong DIMMs etc.]
would it be possible to add some flag to EDAC that
warns the user that the output is not fully reliable?

then blaming Linux)
