[PATCH v3 1/9] x86/microcode/AMD: subtract SECTION_HDR_SIZE from file leftover length

verify_patch_size() function verifies whether the microcode container file
remaining size is large enough to contain a patch of the indicated size.

However, the section header length is not included in this indicated size
but it is present in the leftover file length so it should be subtracted
from the leftover file length before passing this value to
