I'm not sure about those Fixes: tags you're slapping everywhere. First
of all, 8de9930a4618 is a revert so how can this be fixing a revert? If
anything, it should be fixing the original commit

0a227af521d6 ("EDAC/amd64: Support more than two controllers for chip select handling")

which tried the more-than-2-memory-controllers thing.

But, it is not really a fix for that commit but a second attempt at it.
Which is not really a fix but hw enablement.

So I'm dropping those tags here. If you want them in stable, pls
backport them properly and test them on the respective stable kernels
before sending them to stable.
