Subject[PATCH EDAC v26 00/66] EDAC patches for v3.5
Date
This is a long series of patches to fix the EDAC subsystem,
and is being under discussions since Jan.

The current EDAC subsystem has several serious issues with regards
to all Intel Xeon and i3/i5/i7 processors. The EDAC subsystem used
to assume that all DIMM memory sticks have the same topology as the
initial PC designs, e. g:

- the DRAM chips inside the DIMM slots are directly
accessible by the memory controller;

- there's no Advanced Memory Bufffer chips between DIMMs
and the memory controller;

- if the memory controller has more than one channel, all
channels are filled with the same memory type/size;

Due to that, all Intel drivers for hardware newer than 2005 (and
some older Intel hardware) have to lie to the EDAC core, providing
fake memory location information.

Also, the memory errors are reported via snprintk/printk's. As the
printk ABI is not preserved among Kernel versions, applications can't
(and don't) rely on it.

So, userspace applications rely, instead, on error counter sysfs
nodes, with don't allow them to do decay and burst detection, nor
to correlate errors among the same address range (with might help
userspace to distinguish between a real error from a temporary
interference.

-

v.26:

- "RAS: Add a tracepoint for reporting memory..." patch was re-written
in order to send to userspace ABI integer fields as such;
- added a fixup atch from Dan.
- The other patches weren't touched on this version.
