    SubjectRe: [patch 0/4] x86: AMD microcode patch loading v2 fixes
    Tigran, Peter,


    may a firmware package contain a few 'microcode' updates for a specific cpu?

    And if so, does each of them provide independent 'errata' fixes? [*]

    (or they are just different versions of the same self-consistent/full
    'microcode' update and we may need to apply each of them just e.g.
    because we can't jump from stepping X.1 to X.3 without applying X.2 in
    between?

    if it's [1], then I wonder why only a single 'microcode' update (which
    has been previously cached in 'uci->mc') is being applied for the case
    of system-wide resume (apply_microcode_check_cpu()). Don't we need to
    go through the full cpu_request_microcode() cycle to consider all
    updates?


    TIA,

    --
    Best regards,
    Dmitry Adamushko
