[PATCH V2] x86, microcode, AMD: Fix patch level reporting for family15h

From: suravee.suthikulpanit

From: Suravee Suthikulpanit <suravee.suthikulpanit@xxxxxxx>

On AMD family15h, applying microcode patch on the a core (core0)
would also affect the other core (core1) in the same compute unit.
The driver would skip applying the patch on core1, but it still
need to update kernel structures to reflect the proper patch level.

The current logic is not updating the struct ucode_cpu_info.cpu_sig.rev
of the skipped core. This causes the /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/microcode/version
to report incorrect patch level as shown below:

$ grep . cpu?/microcode/version
