Subject: [PATCH 4.19 174/276] x86/microcode: Fix the ancient deprecated microcode loading method

[ Upstream commit 24613a04ad1c0588c10f4b5403ca60a73d164051 ]

Commit

  2613f36ed965 ("x86/microcode: Attempt late loading only when new microcode is present")

added the new define UCODE_NEW to denote that an update should happen
only when newer microcode (than installed on the system) has been found.

But it missed adjusting that for the old /dev/cpu/microcode loading
interface. Fix it.
