Subject[PATCH 4.14 060/118] x86/microcode/intel: Extend BDW late-loading with a revision check
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jia Zhang <qianyue.zj@alibaba-inc.com>

commit b94b7373317164402ff7728d10f7023127a02b60 upstream.

Instead of blacklisting all model 79 CPUs when attempting a late
microcode loading, limit that only to CPUs with microcode revisions <
0x0b000021 because only on those late loading may cause a system hang.

For such processors either:

a) a BIOS update which might contain a newer microcode revision

or

b) the early microcode loading method

should be considered.

Processors with revisions 0x0b000021 or higher will not experience such
hangs.

For more details, see erratum BDF90 in document #334165 (Intel Xeon
Processor E7-8800/4800 v4 Product Family Specification Update) from
September 2017.
