intel-microcode 3.20161104.1 source package in Ubuntu


intel-microcode (3.20161104.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream microcode datafile 20161104
    + New Microcodes:
      sig 0x00050663, pf_mask 0x10, 2016-10-12, rev 0x700000d, size 20480
      sig 0x00050664, pf_mask 0x10, 2016-06-02, rev 0xf00000a, size 21504
    + Updated Microcodes:
      sig 0x000306f2, pf_mask 0x6f, 2016-10-07, rev 0x0039, size 32768
      sig 0x000406f1, pf_mask 0xef, 2016-10-07, rev 0xb00001f, size 25600
    + Removed Microcodes:
      sig 0x000106e4, pf_mask 0x09, 2013-07-01, rev 0x0003, size 6144
    + This update fixes critical errata on Broadwell-DE V2/Y0 (Xeon
      D-1500 family), including one that can crash VMWare ESXi 6 with
      #PF (VMWare KB2146388), and could affect Linux as well.  This same
      issue was fixed for the E5v4 Xeons in release 20160607
    + This update fixes undisclosed (and likely critical) errata on
      Broadwell-E Core i7-68xxK/69xxK/6950X, Broadwell-EP/EX B0/R0/M0
      Xeon E5v4 and Xeon E7v4, and Haswell-EP Xeon E5v3
    + This release deletes the microcode update for the Jasper Forest
      embedded Xeons (Xeon EC35xx/LC35xx/EC35xx/LC55xx), for undisclosed
      reasons.  The deleted microcode is outdated when compared with the
      updates for the other Nehalem Xeons
  * Makefile: always exclude microcode sig 0x206c2 just in case
    Intel is quite clear in the Intel SA-00030 advisory text that recent
    revisions (0x14 and later?) of the 0x206c2 microcode updates must be
    installed along with updated SINIT ACM on vPro systems (i.e. through
    an UEFI/BIOS firmware update).  This is a defensive change so that we
    don't ship such a microcode update in the future by mistake
  * source: remove partially superseded upstream data file: 20160714
  * source: remove superseded upstream data file: 20101123
  * changelog: replace "pf mask" with "pf_mask"
  * control, compat: switch debhelper compatibility level to 9
  * control: bump standards-version, no changes required
