Subject[PATCH v5] x86/microcode/intel: Blacklist the specific BDW-EP for late loading
Date
Instead of blacklisting all types of Broadwell processor when running
a late loading, only BDW-EP (signature 0x406f1, aka family 6, model 79,
stepping 1) with the microcode version less than 0x0b000021 needs to
be blacklisted.

The erratum is documented in the the public documentation #334165 (See
the item BDF90 for details).
