Well, bank4 is shared across cores on the northbridge in *hardware*.
So it is only logical to represent the hardware layout correctly in

Also, if you want to configure any settings over one core's sysfs nodes,
you want those to be visible across all cores automagically:

# echo 12 > machinecheck2/northbridge/dram/threshold_limit
# grep . -Er /sys/devices/system/machinecheck | grep -E "dram.*threshold_limit"
