edac: Create a dimm struct and move the labels into it
The way a DIMM is currently represented implies that they're linked into a per-csrow struct. However, some drivers don't see csrows, as they're ridden behind some chip like the AMB's on FBDIMM's, for example. This forced drivers to fake^Wvirtualize a csrow struct, and to create a mess under csrow/channel original's concept. Move the DIMM labels into a per-DIMM struct, and add there the real location of the socket, in terms of csrow/channel. Latter patches will modify the location to properly represent the memory architecture. All other drivers will use a per-csrow type of location. Some of those drivers will require a latter conversion, as they also fake the csrows internally. TODO: While this patch doesn't change the existing behavior, on csrows-based memory controllers, a csrow/channel pair points to a memory rank. There's a known bug at the EDAC core that allows having different labels for the same DIMM, if it has more than one rank. A latter patch is need to merge the several ranks for a DIMM into the same dimm_info struct, in order to avoid having different labels for the same DIMM. The edac_mc_alloc() will now contain a per-dimm initialization loop that will be changed by latter patches in order to match other types of memory architectures.
