4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Borislav Petkov <b...@suse.de>

commit a15a753539eca8ba243d576f02e7ca9c4b7d7042 upstream.

Doing so is completely void of sense for multiple reasons so prevent
it. Set dis_ucode_ldr to true and thus disable the microcode loader by
default to address xen pv guests which execute the AP path but not the
BSP path.

By having it turned off by default, the APs won't run into the loader
either.

Also, check CPUID(1).ECX[31] which hypervisors set. Well almost, not the
xen pv one. That one gets the aforementioned "fix".

Also, improve the detection method by caching the final decision whether
to continue loading in dis_ucode_ldr and do it once on the BSP. The APs
then simply test that value.
