Some more clarity on this:

Actually, the PPR for family 19h Model 01h, Rev B1 defines the RMP entry format as below:

2.1.4.2 RMP Entry Format
Architecturally the format of RMP entries are not specified in APM. In order to assist software, the following table specifies select portions of the RMP entry format for this specific product. Each RMP entry is 16B in size and is formatted as follows. Software should not rely on any field definitions not specified in this table and the format of an RMP entry may change in future processors.

Architectural implies that it is defined in the APM and shouldn't change in such a way as to not be backward compatible. So non-architectural in this context means that it is only defined in our PPR.

So actually this RPM entry definition is platform dependent and will need to be changed for different AMD processors and that change has to be handled correspondingly in the dump_rmpentry() code.

Thanks,
Ashish
