Have you actually hit this before? If so, where?

Please, no, one patch per thing. Please break this up into two
different patches.

And, in the future, let me know that you need this for other work.
Actually, why did you send this to Ingo in your pull request? What does
your microcode patches need from this patch? It should go through my
tree, especially as there is other sysdev work happening at the moment.

so, no, please don't send this on to anyone else right now.
