Ok, here's my take from simply skimming over the patchset for 5 mins:

* first of all, a lot of the patches are done sloppily and have no commit
messages whatsoever. This is a no-no and the first thing you need to fix.

* http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/mchehab/linux-edac.git;a=commitdiff;h=ad015450e549b29a74283733048254d3c647a33at is humongous, has no commit message and contains a lot of changes which probably deserve a patch of their own. Mauro, you're not doing this since yesterday, you should know better!

* http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/mchehab/linux-edac.git;a=commitdiff;h=ccca89bce4c0515aabd67440ba01ede97d2b4dcc removes crap introduced by earlier patches in the series, so also a no-no and needs to be fixed.

* WTF does the commit message of http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/mchehab/linux-edac.git;a=commitdiff;h=c911a426ef72c817222e7c2ab302a81b69ccbd07 mean? Looks like it redacts a huge function you've introduced in an earlier patch... Hell, no!

...

* And, last but not least, your patches touch amd64_edac* extensively,
and, I need to properly review those changes before they get committed.

So, my absolutely sincere suggestion to you is to split this huge
patchset into smaller patchsets containing 5-10 patches, making it much
easier to review, go over <Documentation/SubmittingPatches> and refresh
your knowledge on how a proper patch should look like and what it should
contain, test your stuff properly on the machines it addresses and
_only_ _then_ send them to the relevant parties for proper review - not
earlier.

HTH.
