    The classic problem of the previous versions of these patches was that
    they consume the same error registers (even if using pci config versus
    msrs as access methods) as the kernel machine check poll/threshold
    interrupt code. And with two logging agents racing on the same
    registers you will always get junk results. Typically with threshold
    enabled the mce code wins the race. I suspect this patchkit has
    exactly the same fundamental design problem. EDAC really is not
    particularly fitting for integrated memory controllers that report
    their errors using standard machine check events.
