intel-microcode (3.20151106.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream microcode data file 20151106
    + New Microcodes:
      sig 0x000306f4, pf mask 0x80, 2015-07-17, rev 0x0009, size 14336
      sig 0x00040671, pf mask 0x22, 2015-08-03, rev 0x0013, size 11264
    + Updated Microcodes:

      sig 0x000306c3, pf mask 0x32, 2015-08-13, rev 0x001e, size 21504

    * This massive Haswell + Broadwell (and related Xeons) update fixes
      several critical errata, including the high-hitting BDD86/BDM101/
      HSM153(?) which triggers an MCE and locks the processor core
      (LP: #1509764)
    * Might fix critical errata BDD51, BDM53 (TSX-related)
  * source: remove superseded upstream data file: 20150121
  * Add support for supplementary microcode bundles:
    + README.source: update and mention supplementary microcode
    + Makefile: support supplementary microcode
      Add support for supplementary microcode bundles, which (unlike .fw
      microcode override files) can be superseded by a higher revision
      microcode from the latest regular microcode bundle.  Also, fix the
      "oldies" target to have its own exclude filter (IUC_OLDIES_EXCLUDE)
  * Add support for x32 arch:
    + README.source: mention x32
    + control,rules: enable building on x32 arch (Closes: #777356)
  * ucode-blacklist: add Broadwell and Haswell-E signatures
    Add a missing signature for Haswell Refresh (Haswell-E) to the "must
    be updated only by the early microcode update driver" list.  There is
    at least one report of one of the Broadwell microcode updates disabling
    TSX-NI, so add them as well just in case
