Ah the magic Opteron memory mapped registers. :)

Also don't forget that you can't initialize ECC properly from cpus
that are not on the same die as the memory controller.

I used fs base for that it worked ok.  It was a little slow because
it was over hypertransport but nothing bad but the ECC state
did not initialize correctly.
