2012-06-11edac: move documentation ABI to ABI/testing/sysfs-devices-edacMauro Carvalho Chehab
The EDAC MC API is currently stored at the wrong place. Move the parts of the EDAC MC ABI that will be kept to ABI/testing/sysfs-devices-edac. The Date: field were added based on git timestamps for the git commit patches that added the functionality at edac.txt.

2012-03-19EDAC: Correct scrub rate APIBorislav Petkov
The original scrub rate API definition states that if scrub rate accessors are not implemented, a negative value (-1) should be written to the sysfs file (/sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc<N>/sdram_scrub_rate, where N is the memory controller number on the system). This is counter-intuitive and awkward at the very least because, when setting the scrub rate, userspace has to write to sysfs and then read it back to check error status of the operation. As Tony notes, best it would be to not have the sdram_scrub_rate in sysfs if scrub rate support is not implemented. It is too late about that and a bunch of drivers on a bunch of arches would need to be changed and tested which is not a trivial task ATM. Instead, settle for the next best thing of returning -ENODEV when implementation is missing and -EINVAL when there was an error encountered while setting the scrub rate.

2008-07-25edac: core fix redundant sysfs controls to parametersArthur Jones
/sys/devices/system/edac/mc has a few files which are duplicated in /sys/module/edac_core/parameters. Now that all the functionality is duplicated between these two locations, we remove the former kobject attributes and update the documentation.
