Well, I guess we can implement all those and have them configurable
in the sense that a single driver loads, it has all functionality and
dependent on the vendor detection, it does only what the vendor wants
like trigger an interrupt or remain silent or ...

Btw, in talking about this with Andre last night, he had the suggestion
that this functionality is also in other implementations besides A57 so
maybe the driver should be called arm_cortex_edac...

Just putting it out there and adding Andre to CC.
