I strongly recommend you to enable EDAC_DEBUG if you're building this driver. This
driver is experimental, and it may be blaming the wrong memory DIMMs, as Sandy
Bridge bios allows setting a large myriad of configurations. Among them, only one
were actually tested.

Well, a patch fixing it should be done with debug enabled, to get all cases.

I prefer a patch fixing the issue. Not sure if I'll have time to work in it today,
as I'm stuck with the second part of media patches for 3.2.
