    Ok, in that case microcode_ctl is right about "/dev/cpu/microcode" and
    distributions need to change to match it. Indeed, it always seemed silly
    to me to "pretend" that the microcode device node is "per cpu" in some
    sense (as it is impossible under Linux to bind userspace app to a given
    cpu then there is no "good" sense in which "per cpu" node can be defined).

    Kind regards
