The drivers don't allocate the dimm descriptors. They're allocated by the
core.

I'm OK to remove the "initializing 12 dimms" message. It doesn't add anything
new.

With regards do the other messages, if the debug messages are not clear,
then let's fix them, instead of removing. What if we print, instead,
on a message like:

"row 1, chan 1 will represent dimm5 (1:2:0) if not empty"

Regards,
Mauro
