Per Leann, we should put a hold on this until after the first round of security updates is out so that in the event of any regressions we are better able to distinguish between kernel and microcode as cause.

AIUI this should now get landed everywhere, as the next round of security updates will include the microcode change.

Thanks Steve -- I'll see that this change gets applied to all the versions and branches.

review: Approve

It occcurs to me to mention that we probably *don't* need this on the guest-specific custom kernels - linux-{azure,kvm,gke,gcp,aws}.
