Subject[PATCH 3.18 40/52] x86/microcode/intel: Extend BDW late-loading further with LLC size check
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jia Zhang <zhang.jia@linux.alibaba.com>

commit 7e702d17ed138cf4ae7c00e8c00681ed464587c7 upstream.

Commit b94b73733171 ("x86/microcode/intel: Extend BDW late-loading with a
revision check") reduced the impact of erratum BDF90 for Broadwell model
79.

The impact can be reduced further by checking the size of the last level
cache portion per core.

Tony: "The erratum says the problem only occurs on the large-cache SKUs.
So we only need to avoid the update if we are on a big cache SKU that is
also running old microcode."

For more details, see erratum BDF90 in document #334165 (Intel Xeon
Processor E7-8800/4800 v4 Product Family Specification Update) from
September 2017.
