SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 00/21 v2] amd64_edac: EDAC module for AMD64
Hi all,

I thought I should summarize some points on the design direction, which,
in my impression are what all the parties involved more or less would
agree on:

* mce interrupt delivers, if EDAC compiled in, the required batch of
dumped MSRs to chipset/CPU specific EDAC driver. Aristeu, I guess you
guys have some code on that, right?

* EDAC module decodes MCE info, computes the DIMM label out of
that. Additional hw setup stuff like memory hoisting/interleaving,
ganged/unganged MC mode, testing infrastructure like DRAM error
injection and all that pertaining to the specific hw is handled by the
EDAC module.

* If EDAC not enabled, mce operates as before.

Comments/suggestions?

Hit me! :)

Boris.
