The reason we switched to family-based autoloading was that almost
every new platform would add a new PCI device ID, which would require
enablement work...

Maybe it is easier if you look at the function end in the .c file directly as
diffs can be confusing:

static bool ecc_enabled(struct amd64_pvt *pvt)


        amd64_info("Node %d: DRAM ECC %s.\n",
                   nid, (ecc_en ? "enabled" : "disabled"));

        if (!ecc_en || !nb_mce_en)
                return false;
                return true;
