This one is incomplete: if we really want to hand up the error code, we
need to add a printk to the caller free_initrd_mem() saying that saving
of microcode from the initrd failed.

However, save_microcode_in_initrd_intel() already warns about it in the
error case.

So, actually, I think the warning should be issued by
save_microcode_in_initrd() and this function itself should be made to
return void. And save_microcode_in_initrd_intel() can simply return the
error code without doing the printk.
