If I build the XEN_DOM0 kernel without CPU_UCODE without this proposed
change, then the build fails. If I build unchanged XEN_DOM0 kernel
(with CPU_UCODE) with this proposed change, the kernel build finishes
without a hiccup (CVS tag netbsd-6-1-RELEASE).

And does it actually work and pass regression tests?

I don't know.

The intent of the
original lines seem clear: xen_ucode and cpu_ucode_amd are required in a
dom0, even if the cpu_ucode option is not given.  When was this
committed?  What did the commit message say?

``Support CPU microcode loading via cpuctl(8).
Implemented and enabled via CPU_UCODE kernel config option
for x86 and Xen Dom0.
Tested on different AMD machines with different
CPU families.
