The first part of the scrubbing of the intel early microcode loader.
There's more work to come but let's unload this pile first.
x86/microcode/intel: Fix printing of microcode blobs in show_saved_mc()

When doing

  echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/microcode/reload

in order to reload microcode, I get:

  microcode: Total microcode saved: 1

because we're using smp_processor_id() in preemtible context. And we
don't really need to use it there because the microcode container we're
dumping is global and CPU-specific info is irrelevant.

While at it, make pr_* stuff use "microcode: " prefix for easier
grepping and document how to enable the DEBUG build.
