SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] x86, microcode: Make reload interface per system
Date

Only if supplied over the old interface. Over the new interface,
we just see

microcode: error! Bad data in microcode data file

in the log. So clearly the driver doesn't know how to split up the
microcode.bin that Intel provides, and (until Henrique's iucode-tool or
something like it becomes ubiquitous) the old interface, and
microcode_ctl, cannot be removed.
