Actually this call can't be used, and if early code used it prior to setup_arch() it'd be a bug as its only properly set until later. Vetting for correctness of all code call is still required though and perhaps we do need something to catch now this PV type on early code such as this one if we don't want it. From what I've gathered before on other bsp ucode we don't want ucode loaded for PV guest types through these mechanisms.
