Oh fun, really?!

So a single system can have DDR4 *and* DDR5 on the same board?!

So then that


is insufficient to store the DIMM type for a pvt. If you have multiple
UMCs on a pvt and all have different type DIMMs, then you need the
relevant DIMM type when you dump it in sysfs...

Which then means, you need ->dram_type to be per UMC...

And also, I'm assuming the hw already enforces that DIMMs on a single
UMC must match - it simply won't boot if they don't so you don't have to
enforce that, at least.

This one is insufficient, I'm afraid.

One way to address this is, you could use pvt->umc at the places where
dram_type is used and assign directly to the dimm->mtype thing. But then
you'd need a way to map each struct dimm_info *dimm to the UMC so that
you can determine the correct DIMM type.

Which would make pvt->dram_type redundant and can be removed.

Or you might have a better idea...
