Subject: [PATCH 1/3] x86, ucode-amd: Load ucode-patches once and not
 separately fo each CPU

This also implies that corresponding log messages, e.g.

  platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin

show up only once on module load and not when ucode is updated for
each CPU.
