Subject[PATCH 4.14 21/74] x86/microcode: Dont abuse the TLB-flush interface
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 23cb7d46f371844c004784ad9552a57446f73e5a upstream.

Commit:

ec400ddeff20 ("x86/microcode_intel_early.c: Early update ucode on Intel's CPU")

... grubbed into tlbflush internals without coherent explanation.

Since it says its a precaution and the SDM doesn't mention anything like
this, take it out back.
