The reason this was disabled was due to LP #1714112. I think it's likely
that we can enable it for x86 too, provided that we also have
9a821fd210c0 ("EDAC, sb_edac: Don't create a second memory controller if
HA1 is not present"). The commit is already on
artful/master-next-backlog, all we really need is some testing to verify
that the commit does allow turning the option back on for the affected

I don't object enabling it for arm64 in the mean time though, so
provided that we do the follow-up for x86:

For bionic I think we should just go ahead and enable it for all
architectures, so I've pushed a commit for those to do that and remove
the note for this option in the annotations file.
