How about adding the the SMCA feature to the amd64_cpuids[] table in
amd64_edac.c?

We can use X86_MATCH_VENDOR_FEATURE to match on AMD (and Hygon) systems
with SMCA. And we can remove the X86_MATCH_VENDOR_FAM entries for
families 17h-19h.

I'm assuming the issue is that amd64_edac_mod is autoloading due to the
family-based device table, and this will load edac_mce_amd as a
dependency.

Thanks,
Yazen
