Default Bug#666556: Please enable Intel Sandy-Bridge Integrated MC CONFIG_EDAC_SBRIDGE

Source: linux-2.6
Version: 3.2.12-1
Severity: normal


Hello,


Please enable the support for the Intel Sandy-Bridge memory controller
for EDAC so we can take advantage of ECC ram modules on this platform.

Just set CONFIG_EDAC_SBRIDGE=m in the .config


Thanks!

As you may know, EDAC is not required for ECC. It does improve error
reporting and helps you to identify faulty modules.

The driver is marked as experimental and there are several important bug
fixes post-3.2. If we enable it, we also need to apply those bug fixes
and possibly others.

Yes, I discover this after sending the bug report. Sorry for the confusion.

The diff between 3.4-rc1 and 3.2 for this driver is small, so probably
its worth applying this bug fixes and enabling it.

I believe that sandy bridge based architectures are going to be very
used during the debian wheezy reign.
