Certain MIPS platform can have 2 nodes and number of memory controllers can be more than '2' .

for above condition, if
it fails in this function edac_mc_add_mc_with_groups
in below condition
if (mci->mc_idx >= EDAC_MAX_MCS) {
pr_warn_once("Too many memory controllers: %d\n", mci->mc_idx);
return -ENODEV;
That is why this fix is needed.
