On my p5020ds (powerpc e5500) I'm seeing the following oops with next-20151208:

Git bisect says it's caused by:

    EDAC: Rip out the edac_subsys reference counting

    This was really dumb - reference counting for the main EDAC sysfs
    object. While we could've simply registered it as the first thing in the
    module init path and then hand it around to what needs it.

    Do that and rip out all the code around it, thus simplifying the whole
    handling significantly.

    Move the edac_subsys node back to edac_module.c.

    Signed-off-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.ede>

Presumably caused by the fact that edac_init() is subsys_initcall(), whereas
corenet_gen_publish_devices() is arch_initcall().
