Subject[PATCH v2 01/24] EDAC, mc: Fix grain_bits calculation
Date
The grain in edac is defined as "minimum granularity for an error
report, in bytes". The following calculation of the grain_bits in
edac_mc is wrong:

grain_bits = fls_long(e->grain) + 1;

Where grain_bits is defined as:

grain = 1 << grain_bits

Example:

grain = 8 # 64 bit (8 bytes)
grain_bits = fls_long(8) + 1
grain_bits = 4 + 1 = 5

grain = 1 << grain_bits
grain = 1 << 5 = 32

Replacing it with the correct calculation:

grain_bits = fls_long(e->grain - 1);

The example gives now:

grain_bits = fls_long(8 - 1)
grain_bits = fls_long(8 - 1)
grain_bits = 3

grain = 1 << 3 = 8

Note: We need to check if the hardware reports a reasonable grain != 0
and fallback with a warn_once and 1 byte granularity otherwise.
