I guess that's required if it called start_update prior to calling
end_update?

Don't you need to call start_update before calling
microcode_update_cpu?

It would be nice to have paired calls to start_update/end_update in
the same context (ie: function) or else this is very hard to follow,
and very easy to get out of sync.

Thanks, Roger.
