Hi,

Sorry for the delay in responding, I know you pinged me about it yesterday.

As I just commented on the thread with Mike, I think we would be
better off sticking to embedding a standard JEDEC SPD structure in the
device tree. It's not large (128-256 bytes depending on memory type),
and it's clearly defined and used all over the industry.

It also has the benefit of reusing parsing code if you ever end up
with a system that uses DIMMs for memory, thus needing to parse the
SPD on said modules.
