Similar to commit f0a029fff4a5 ("EDAC/Intel: Do not load EDAC driver when running as a guest")

There's little to no point in loading an EDAC driver running in a guest.

Add a check in each of the Intel EDAC drivers for X86_FEATURE_HYPERVISOR
and simply return -ENODEV in the init routine.

Did you even read this sentence before leaving it in the commit message
or you simply copied the commit message of f0a029fff4a5 blindly?

sorry, I notice the patch for Intel, and feel we should do the same
for AMD, hence post the patch.
I forgot to adapt the content of the commit message. -.-
