I can certainly add cache nodes and cpu nodes and then put the
interrupts in those nodes. I was thinking along those same lines when I
ported this driver but figured it would be good to get something out
there. The only question I have is how am I supposed to hook that up
into the linux device model? Will the edac driver bind to the device
created for the cpus node and the cache node? I guess it will have to be
a driver that binds to two devices.

One could argue that we should put the cp15 based architected timers in
the cpus node also but so far nobody has done that and I think there was
some reasoning behind that, Mark?
