    This was caused by the edac core rewrite I made, merged for 3.6, that
    replaced the usage of raw kobj in order to use, instead, struct device.

    I tested the patches on several machines and they're OK. It took
    me some time to test them, as I got flooded with ~400 patches for
    review while I was out for KS/2012... It is taking some time for me to
    dig into each of them, especially since I hit into some internal dead

    The good news is that we are equipping several machines at Red Hat labs
    with different memory configurations, with is allowing us to do a
    comprehensive testset on the EDAC x86 drivers. We've got already
    some longstanding bugs there, as well as a few recent regressions.

    So, in addition to the bugs noticed by Shaun and Fengguang,
    I also got bug fixes for 3 EDAC drivers (sb_edac, i3200 and i5000).

    I just updated the patches today on my git tree (so, they should be
    popping up tomorrow at -next).

    So, I will send you tomorrow a pull request with all fixes I'm aware
    of for edac, after the -next merging.

    If you prefer otherwise to merge them today, you can get those patches
    with my SOB at:

    git:// master
