Subject: [PATCH] x86/microcode: Do the family check first
Date: Thu, 12 Oct 2017 13:23:16 +0200
Message-ID: <20171012112316.977-1-bp@alien8.de> (raw)

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

On CPUs like AMD's Geode, for example, we shouldn't even try to load
microcode because they do not support the modern microcode loading
interface.

However, we do the family check *after* the other checks whether the
loader has been disabled on the command line or whether we're running in
a guest.

So move the family checks first in order to exit early if we're being
loaded on an unsupported family.
