Can we say "Opterons (Family 10h to Family 15h)"? It may also apply to
Family 16h, but I don't know if they were branded as Opterons.

The injection code in this module doesn't apply to Family 17h and later.

Also, Family 17h and later doesn't allow the OS direct access to the error
injection registers. They're locked down by security policy, etc.

Related to the comment above, can this be changed to the following?

	if (pvt->fam < 0x10 || pvt->fam >= 0x17)

Everything else looks good to me.
