I haven't looked at it yet but I'd prefer if this patch went the normal
way and landed in stable only eventually so that it gets some testing by
people in linux-next first.

It is not a trivial patch and we did break EDAC with recent rework so
I'd prefer if we take it slowly here and do more extensive testing
before we expose it to the world.

Also, how does this patch play with your cleanup? I'm guessing this
patch goes first and then the cleanup...
