Looks like 4.8-rc8 is missing https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/8/10/231
[PATCH v12] acpi, apei, arm64: APEI initial support for aarch64. When I 
submitted the patch to you, I had an earlier version of this patch 
applied to my tree hence the mix-up.

Your alternate config option change will be sufficient when this patch 
lands. But you will also need CONFIG_EDAC_GHES=y in config.common.ubuntu 
to enable EDAC_GHES. Would it be ok with you committing your alternate 
patch so that the dependency CONFIG_EDAC_MM_EDAC=y is satisfied? Although 
it is not going to fix the bug 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1628111 because it is 
missing the supporting patch.

The cert target for the arm64 system that needs this enabled is 16.04.03. 
So, I think this can wait... I can submit the SRU for "CONFIG_EDAC_GHES=y 
in config.common.ubuntu" once this patch 
https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/8/10/231 lands in Y+ kernel.

*OR* you can NACK the whole thing, and we can deal with it for 16.04.03.

Any thoughts ?
