SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 4/7] ghes_edac: avoid multiple calls to dmi_walk()

And I don't.

There's no such thing as "per mci" if the driver scans *all DIMMs* per
register call. If it does it this way, then it is only one mci.

It is actually wrong right now because if you register more than one
mci and you do edac_inc_ce_error()/edac_inc_ue_error(), potentially
different counters get incremented for the same errors. Exactly because
each instance registered is *wrongly* responsible for all DIMMs on the
system.

So you either need to partition the DIMMs per mci (which I can't imagine
how it would work) or introduce locking when incrementing the mci->
counters.
