x86/microcode/intel: Use correct buffer size for saving microcode data

In generic_load_microcode(), curr_mc_size is the size of the last
allocated buffer and since we have this performance "optimization"
there to vmalloc a new buffer only when the current one is bigger,
curr_mc_size ends up becoming the size of the biggest buffer we've seen
so far.

However, we end up saving the microcode patch which matches our CPU
and its size is not curr_mc_size but the respective mc_size during the
iteration while we're staring at it.

So save that mc_size into a separate variable and use it to store the
previously found microcode buffer.

Without this fix, we could get oops like this:

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffc9000e30f000
