Subject: [PATCH 1/3] x86: microcode: report if CPU has up-to-date microcode

Before this change, successful microcode uploads clearly
indicate that it was done:

microcode: CPU1 sig=0x206a7, pf=0x10, revision=0x1a
microcode: CPU1 updated to revision 0x29, date = 2013-06-12

whereas if microcode was not uploaded, it is not clear why:

microcode: CPU1 sig=0x206a7, pf=0x10, revision=0x29
(nothing more)

So, what was it? No microcode file? No microcode for this sig/pf?
CPU already has microcode with this (or newer) revision?

In practice, it means that I need to ask people to provide me
with more information ("do you have microcode package installed?
which version is it?" etc).

This change adds a message which covers "CPU is up-to-date" and
"no microcode for your CPU in this file" cases:

microcode: CPU1 sig=0x206a7, pf=0x10, revision=0x29
microcode: CPU rev 0x29 is same or newer than 0x29 in microcode data
