[PATCH] x86 microcode: using request_firmware to pull microcode
Using request_firmware to pull ucode from userspace, so we don't need the application 'microcode_ctl' to assist. We name each ucode file according to CPU's info as intel-ucode/family-model-stepping. In this way we could split ucode file as small one. This has a lot of advantages such as selectively update and validate microcode for specific models, better manage microcode file, easily write tools for administerators and so on. with the changes, we should put all intel-ucode/xx-xx-xx microcode files into the firmware dir (I had a tool to split previous big data file into small one and later we will release new style data file). The init script should be changed to just loading the driver without unloading Signed-off-by: Shaohua Li <shaohua.li@intel.com> Acked-by: Tigran Aivazian <tigran@veritas.com> Cc: Greg KH <greg@kroah.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
