I took this for a quick spin on the qdrive3 I've got access to without
any issue:

    [root@...alhost ~]# modprobe qcom_edac
    [root@...alhost ~]# dmesg | grep -i edac
    [    0.620723] EDAC MC: Ver: 3.0.0
    [    1.165417] ghes_edac: GHES probing device list is empty
    [  594.688103] EDAC DEVICE0: Giving out device to module qcom_llcc_edac controller llcc: DEV qcom_llcc_edac (INTERRUPT)
    [root@...alhost ~]# cat /proc/interrupts | grep ecc
    174:          0          0          0          0          0          0          0          0     GICv3 614 Level     llcc_ecc
    [root@...alhost ~]#

Potentially stupid question, but are users expected to manually load the
driver as I did? I don't see how it would be loaded automatically in the
current state, but thought it was funny that I needed to modprobe

Please let me know if you want me to do any more further testing!
