amd64-microcode 3.20160316.1 source package in Ubuntu


amd64-microcode (3.20160316.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Bump major version number to 3: early-initramfs support
  * Support is now restricted to Linux kernel 3.14 and later.  For older
    kernels, please use the version 2 (older) branch of the package.
  * Implement early-initramfs mode, and remove normal mode
    * debian/control: add versioned recommends for initramfs-tools and
      dracut.  Note that dracut 044 is required for Linux 4.4 and later,
      otherwise dracut 040 would be enough
    * debian/default: add early mode, remove normal mode from comments
    * initramfs hook: use cpio to generate an early-initramfs with
      microcode for all processors, blacklist kernels older than 3.14,
      and remove normal mode support.
    * initramfs.init-premount: remove, not needed for early-initramfs
    * debian/rules: don't install init-premount initramfs script.
  * initramfs.hook: detect a missing microcode.ko and don't attempt to
    force_load() it.  In verbose mode, log when the microcode driver is
    modular.  For Linux 4.4 and later, skip the module loading logic
    (closes: #809444)
  * README.Debian: update for early initramfs support, and add information
    on how to disable early updates using the dis_ucode_ldr kernel boot
  * Support for x32 was enabled in debian/control for the 2.20160316.1
    upload, but the changelog did not record this by mistake.  The missing
    entry was retroactively added to debian/changelog by this upload
