EDAC/bluesmoke support in the kernel

I was looking at the EDAC support for the intel 7xxx family of memory hub controllers and when they detect a failure they output a csrow/channel/offset tuple that defines the location where the event occurred. what I would like to do is add to the output information regarding which dimm slot actually contained the event.

The EDAC driver supports setting dimm labels, but I would prefer not hardcoding these values in the driver. They could be set at startup time, but then you would lose valuable information on particular errors prior to completion of initialization.

Anyone have thoughts on a good way to approach this. I read through some of the 7xxx chipset pci specs, but it wasn't readily apparent how to determine the mapping from csrow/channel to slot.

thanks in advance,
