[Buildroot] [PATCH] package/intel-microcode: don't use install -D -t

Commit 1f0beaf9a8e2b8f0bb6e53694b38d70900b9128f ("intel-microcode:
bump to version 20180807a") introduced the use of "install -D -t" to
the intel-microcode package. The intent is that install will create
the full destination directory, including all components leading to
it, before copying the files.

Unfortunately, "install -D -t" is only supported since coreutils since
v8.23. Several of the build systems we support have older coreutils
versions, such as Debian 7, which uses coreutils 8.13. Ubuntu 14.04
also doesn't have a recent enough coreutils.

So let's create the directory explicitly first, and then use a more
regular "install -t".



Note: the "gzip: stdout: Broken pipe" messages in those failures seem
unrelated. We have been able to reproduce the installation failure
without those "Broken pipe" issues, and we have not been able to
reproduce those "Broken pipe" problems.
