Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86/microcode/intel: Extend BDW late-loading with platform id and LLC check
Date
The commit b94b73733171
("x86/microcode/intel: Extend BDW late-loading with a revision check")
reduces the impact of erratum BDF90 for Broadwell process model. Now,
the impact can be reduced further through adding the checks for
platform id and the size of LLC per core.

This fix is useful to reduce the impact for microcode update launched
by BIOS with a must machine reset.

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