Boris,

So where should we go. Proposed solutions are piling up:

1) Make skx_common a module
[downside: have to EXPORT everything in it]
2) Move module-ish bits out of skx_common
[downside: perhaps fragile]
3) #include skx_common.c into {skx,i10nm}_edac.c
[downside: no patch yet, bigger code size]
