Hi Boris,

Thanks for the review comments.

Yes it is ARM64_RAS_EXTN and I have been hoping if James can provide the 
feedback,
it has been some time now since I posted this out.

Will correct.

No it cannot be switched automatically. It is used in case some SoCs do 
not support an irq based mechanism for EDAC.
But I am contradicting myself because I am telling that atleast one 
interrupt should be specified in bindings,
so it is best if I drop this polling option for now.

qcom_edac driver is for QCOM system cache(last level cache), it should 
be renamed to qcom_llcc_edac.c.
This new driver is for QCOM Kryo CPU core caches(L1,L2,L3).

Functionality cannot be shared as these two are different IP blocks and 
best kept separate.

I chose this because these TRMs are openly available and if you search 
for these above terms like
"Cortex-A76 TRM Chapter B3.3" in google, then the first search result 
will be the TRM pdf, otherwise
I would have to specify the long URL for the pdf and we do not know how 
long that URL link will be active.

How is this not easily readable? If I put this in kryo_check_err_type, 
then
there will be nested switch which I think is not so great in terms of 
readability
since it will not fit in one screen and is just more lines of code.

Because we will be calling smp_processor_id in preemptible context and 
if we enable CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT,
we would get a nice backtrace.

Sorry but I do not understand the sillyness here. Could you please

Actually its not silly. In case, polling is enabled and on PM exit 
edev_ctl could be NULL.

Ok will add a return check.
