I'd tend to agree here. Rick has made a convincing argument that there
are significant numbers of real world cases where a defective row/column
in a DIMM results in a predictable pattern of errors. The ball is now
in Google's court to take a look at their systems that have high numbers
of errors to see if they can actually be described by a small number
of BadRAM patterns as Rick has claimed.
