Hmmm, I thought I tested this recently...

Ugh. This must be the test driver remove thing.

I've reproduced this, but had to remove the parent GHES twice. It looks like it tries to
use the first ghes_edac global variables when freeing the second. ghes_init prevents it
from re-allocating over the top.

The below diff fixes it for me. (I'll post it as a proper patch once I've done the
