I am just curious about this recommendation. Does it mean that we shouldn't
use edac interface just for reporting problems?

I didn't play with it but I guess that there is a record about edac driver
via sysfs, etc. You could read some useful information that you know
what it is protected and I hope that edac interface bring any value
to reporting errors comparing to just printk message from IRQ handler.

My question is if using printk in IRQ handler and report problem is equal to
reporting this via edac interface. Or it is just easy way to do but
using edac interface is right solution and how to do it properly
is different question.
