commit a956bd6f8583326b18348ab1452b4686778f785d upstream.

Loading the microcode driver on an unsupported CPU and subsequently
unloading the driver causes

on recent kernels.

This is due to commit 8a25a2fd126c ("cpu: convert 'cpu' and
'machinecheck' sysdev_class to a regular subsystem") which renders
commit 6c53cbfced04 ("x86, microcode: Correct sysdev_add error path")

See http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=133416246406478

Avoid above warning by restoring the old driver behaviour before
6c53cbfced04 ("x86, microcode: Correct sysdev_add error path").
