Ok, it's nice that you have split this one out.

Please also split out the MCE printk change you did in the first patch - even
if it's a oneliner we want the first patch to only include changes focused to
the primary purpose alone: the introduction of x86_cpu::microcode_version.

Also, please split the first patch into two other parts: a first one that
factors out the Intel microcode-version MSR function into a separate function,
and the second patch that introduces the x86_cpu::microcode_version field and
fills it in in the CPU detection code and keeps it updated in the microcode
