Subject[PATCH v3 0/5] enable ghes_edac on selected platforms
Date
The ghes_edac driver was introduced in 2013 [1], but it has not been
enabled by any distro yet. This is because the driver obtains error
info from firmware interfaces, which are not properly implemented on
many platforms.

To get out from this situation, add a platform check to selectively
enable the driver on the platforms that are known to have proper
firmware implementation. Platform vendors can add their platforms to
the list when they support ghes_edac.

Patch 1-2 introduces a common function for platform check.
Patch 3 introduces platform check to ghes_edac.
Patch 4-5 optimizes regular edac driver's init code when ghes_edac is used.

v3:
- Change struct & func names to "platform" from "oem" (patch 1)
- Drop a patch that checks OSC APEI bit (remove v2 patch 3)
- Drop a patch that avoids multiple calls to dmi_walk() (remove v2 patch 4)
- Change parameter name to ghes_edac.force_load (patch 3)
- Change function to edac_get_owner() (patch 4)
- Change edac_mc_owner to const char * (patch 4)
- Change to call edac_get_owner() at the beginning (patch 5)
- Remove ".c" from mod_name (patch 5)

v2:
- Address review comments (patch 1)
- Add OSC APEI check (patch 3)
- Avoid multiple dmi_walk (patch 4)
- Add EDAC MC owner check (patch 6,7)
