x86/microcode: Untangle from BLK_DEV_INITRD

Thomas Voegtle reported that doing oldconfig with a .config which has
CONFIG_MICROCODE enabled but BLK_DEV_INITRD disabled prevents the
microcode loading mechanism from being built.

So untangle it from the BLK_DEV_INITRD dependency so that oldconfig
doesn't turn it off and add an explanatory text to its Kconfig help what
the supported methods for supplying microcode are.
