[PATCH v7 26/36] x86/CPU/AMD: Make the microcode level available earlier in the boot




Move the setting of the cpuinfo_x86.microcode field from amd_init() to
early_amd_init() so that it is available earlier in the boot process. This
avoids having to read MSR_AMD64_PATCH_LEVEL directly during early boot.
