      The article is correct about EDAC but the title is somewhat misleading.
      There was always ECC support and it has nothing to do with Linux.

      Change ECC in the title to EDAC?

        For those following from home:

        ECC is done 100% in hardware so if it is enabled by whatever means at board initialization it will work fine regardless.

        EDAC is a logging system to actually get information from the ECC hardware so you know when some error happened and was corrected.
