Subject: [PATCH 09/12] x86/microcode/AMD: Track patch allocation size explicitly

In preparation for reducing the use of ksize(), record the actual
allocation size for later memcpy(). This avoids copying extra
(uninitialized!) bytes into the patch buffer when the requested allocation
size isn't exactly the size of a kmalloc bucket. Additionally fixes
potential future issues where runtime bounds checking will notice that
the buffer was allocated to a smaller value than returned by ksize().
