So my ARM person is telling me A53 is little and A57 is big.

In any case, I'd like to have a sane collection of RAS functionality,
either per uarch or per vendor. So I can imagine having edac_a53,
edac_a57, etc.

But not per functional unit. Especially if the functionality is shared
between core designs.

In that case, we'll have to do something like fsl_ddr_edac being shared
between MPC85xx and layerscape.

Yes. If you want to do a nxp_edac or so which supports your hardware,
that's fine. And then have the different functional units get built into
a final edac driver, that's fine with me too. Other drivers will reuse
those functional units since they're stock and should adhere to the
