No, this patch does not remove the driver details nor it changes the
data representation. It changes how that data is prepared internally.
The patch removes the (useless) intermediate buffer detail_location[]
and writes everything directly into other_detail[] buffer.

No actual change here, but I found it useful to reorder things here
for comparization with the similar code block in
edac_mc_handle_error().
