1) that's not a complete answer -- I asked to the EDAC guys agree? Have
you even tried talking to them?

and 2) 'can' is not the right word here, I though we'd all agreed to
talk about this and agree on some approach before littering the kernel
with tiny special case interfaces.. which this will be if EDAC and
others don't agree with you.

So I want a firm agreement of all parties interested that this is the
way forward, if not you already have my NAK.
