Subject[PATCH 3/8] x86, microcode, intel: clarify log messages
Date
The Intel microcode update driver will skip the second hardware thread
on hyper-threaded cores during an update run, as the first hardware
thread will have updated the entire core. This can confuse users,
because it will look like some CPUs were not updated in the system log.
Attempt to clarify the log messages to hint that we might be updating
more than one CPU (hardware thread) at a time.

Make sure all driver log messages conform to this template: "microcode:
CPU#: <message>". The <message> might refer to the core, and not to the
hardware thread/CPU.

Reword error and debug messages for clarity or style. Tag most error
messages as "error:", and warnings as "warning:". Report conditions
which will stop a microcode update as errors, and conditions which will
not stop a microcode update as warnings.
