x86, microcode, AMD: Unify valid container checks
For additional coverage, BorisO and friends unknowlingly did swap AMD microcode with Intel microcode blobs in order to see what happens. What did happen on 32-bit was [ 5.722656] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at be3a6008 [ 5.722693] IP: [<c106d6b4>] load_microcode_amd+0x24/0x3f0 [ 5.722716] *pdpt = 0000000000000000 *pde = 0000000000000000 because there was a valid initrd there but without valid microcode in it and the container check happened *after* the relocated ramdisk handling on 32-bit, which was clearly wrong. While at it, take care of the ramdisk relocation on both 32- and 64-bit as it is done on both. Also, comment what we're doing because this code is a bit tricky.
