    But we are :-)

    drivers/edac/ contains other architectures too, patches for which we
    cannot (and probably don't want to) test so the whole deal has to be

    I don't consider MCE decoding and injection drivers but rather MCA
    functionality extensions or something, so those should go to arch/x86/

    And the DRAM error decoding things, aka EDAC, should stay where they
    are, although I cannot call them real drivers, either. We can't move
    them yet anyway because they use the whole EDAC infrastructure.
