    SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] x86, microcode: Make reload interface per system
    Date
    On 20 Jun 2012, Borislav Petkov uttered the following:

    Only if supplied over the old interface. Over the new interface,
    we just see

    microcode: error! Bad data in microcode data file

    in the log. So clearly the driver doesn't know how to split up the
    microcode.bin that Intel provides, and (until Henrique's iucode-tool or
    something like it becomes ubiquitous) the old interface, and
    microcode_ctl, cannot be removed.
