Description

When a CPU microcode update fails due to it not being accepted by the processor, the resulting error messages are misleading:

|C| WARNING: cpu0: failed to update microcode from version 0xa001133 to 0x0
|C| WARNING: cpu1: failed to update microcode from version 0xa001133 to 0x0
|C| WARNING: cpu2: failed to update microcode from version 0xa001133 to 0x0
|C| WARNING: cpu3: failed to update microcode from version 0xa001133 to 0x0
|C| WARNING: cpu4: failed to update microcode from version 0xa001133 to 0x0

The failure to load the update in this case was #14991 but we should fix up the messages.
