SubjectRE: [PATCH 3/3] EDAC: Convert AMD EDAC pieces to use RAS printk buffer

This looks unpleasant if your userspace agent set this sysfs file, and
then dies (or gets killed).

Perhaps you need some device file that the agent keeps open (so if the
agent goes away, the kernel gets a "close" on the device to tell it
to revert). But even with this sort of solution you would still have
to worry about races.
