Err, why? This is adding new stuff to an address translation function.
How does that fix amd64_edac loading on Rome?

That doesn't stop it from loading, sorry.

Now, before you guys do any new features, I'd like you to split this
humongous function umc_normaddr_to_sysaddr() logically into separate
helpers and each helper does exactly one thing and one thing only.

Then use a verb in its name: umc_translate_normaddr_to_sysaddr() or so.

Also, Yazen, remind me again pls why isn't this function in
drivers/edac/amd64_edac.c, where it is needed?

If the reason is not valid anymore, let's move it there before splitting
so that it doesn't bloat the core code.

Thx.
