[PATCH 00/11] x86/ucode: Cleanup and fixes - Part 4/n (AMD)

The first patch definitely needs backporting.  Second is a good candidate as
well.  Everything else probably not.

This follows similar cleanup on the Intel side, removing gratuitous memory
allocations (both interms of number, and indirection), and fixes several
things to be more uniform (handling of cpu_sig->sig, and parsing of multiple
