Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86/microcode: Do the family check first
Date
From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

commit 1f161f67a272cc4f29f27934dd3f74cb657eb5c4 upstream with adjustments.

On CPUs like AMD's Geode, for example, we shouldn't even try to load
microcode because they do not support the modern microcode loading
interface.

However, we do the family check *after* the other checks whether the
loader has been disabled on the command line or whether we're running in
a guest.

So move the family checks first in order to exit early if we're being
loaded on an unsupported family.
