    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?

    -Andi (who can just see people replacing the wrong DIMMs and
    then blaming Linux)
