Subject[PATCH v4 3/6] x86/microcode: Display revisions only when update is successful
Date
Right now, microcode loading failures and successes print the same
message "Reloading completed". This is misleading to users.

Display the updated revision number only if an update was successful.
Display "Reload completed" only if the update was successful, otherwise
report the update failed.
