Subject: [PATCH] EDAC/amd64: Dump registers before checking ECC

Move dump_misc_regs earlier so decoded register contents are shown
even if ECC cannot be enabled. The dump gives info such as number of
memory controllers, so it serves as a sensible smoke-check even on
platforms without ECC memory.

I used this patch when testing EDAC on AMD Family 17h Model 60h CPU,
which needs another patch (adding PCI ids) that I intend to send
shortly. I think it would be useful to have this upstream.
