There is no specific reason for u32 either. This code is generic for
many machines and compilers, so unsigned int seems to be the best
choice here to get an optimum.

IMO 'count' is clear here, 'error' isn't. I prefer short names for
local variables and arguments.

If no one else complains I would prefer moving to
__edac_device_handle_* as exported sympbol. But make this change in 2
patches to make backports easy, first add __edac_device_handle_*()
(and introduce the *_count() inline functions), then remove
edac_device_handle_*() entirely.

Thanks,
