Subject[patch V181 13/54] x86/microcode: Dont abuse the tlbflush interface
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

Commit: ec400ddeff20 ("x86/microcode_intel_early.c: Early update ucode on
Intel's CPU") grubbed into tlbflush internals without coherent explanation.

Since it says its precaution and the SDM doesn't mention anything like
this, take it out back.
