I agree that it's hard to review as it is, and will split it up into a few
smaller patches.

If you have another suggestion, please let me know. Adding this
prototypes is perhaps not ideal, but I personally don't see any downside,
aside from aesthetics. Several other architectures have either asm/ or
kernel/entry.h, and a few others have head.h, so it's at least in line
with existing practice.

Thanks, will review the above issues.

Once you can get the ack from the EDAC maintainers, I'll most likely apply
your previous patch. In the meantime I'm planning to get the sparse fixes
in early, since they are long overdue.


Thanks for the review,
