Subject: [PATCH] x86_64: Limit the number of microcode messages

x86_64: Limit the number of microcode messages

Presented as an example of summarizing startup information,
but as others have pointed out this particular message can be
removed completely from the console log.

Summarize microcode messages to the form:

[    8.961953] microcode: CPU0-23: sig=0x206e5, pf=0x4, revision=0xffff0016
[    8.969494] Microcode Update Driver: v2.00 <tigran@...azian.fsnet.co.uk>, Peter Oruba

(Note: I need a better method for triggering the summary message.)
