#10300 closed enhancement (fixed)

intel-microcode : 20180312 is now available (was 20180108 has been pulled)

Reported by: ken@… Owned by: ken@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 8.3
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


The link now goes to 20171117, so at the moment the text "As of this writing the most recent version of the microcode is microcode-20180108.tgz" is wrong.

Earlier, I saw on lkml that dmw's work re Spectre (v1, I think) blacklisted microcode version 0x23 for Haswell. As noted yesterday, that version has been flagged as "do not install" by intel.

Since the link works and there is not (yet) a newer version, changing the book is not urgent. Perhaps newer versions will appear before we freeze for 8.2.

I fixed this at revision 19704, but will leave the ticket open pending a new firmware release by Intel.

Milestone: 8.28.3

No new firmware. Moving to 8.3 for now, but if something comes up, we cna address it before 8.2 is released.

Apparently, this also includes the old microcode.dat for those distributions still using that, as well as the modern ucode/ directory.

NB at the moment, the change to accept the Skylake mitigation for this is not yet in tip AFAICS, so it is not yet in linus' tree. But it looks as if SandyBridge now has new firmware.
