Description Geoff Gustafson 2008-02-05 09:49:56 EST
1. Feature Name: update microcode to 20070815 version

2. Description: An updated Intel processor microcode data file is now available
at downloadcenter.intel.com (search for 'microcode' and choose any processor).
This is only a new data file, the microcode_ctl source itself isn't changing.

* 32-bit x86
* 64-bit Intel EM64T 
64-bit Itanium2

Priority (H,M,L): H
Target Releases:
Target Release Date: 
Drivers or hardware dependency:
Target Kernel:

3. Business Justification:
Support for latest processors.

4. Status: 
Binary data file already posted to downloadcenter.intel.com

5. Hardware to Red Hat?
Intel does not disclose specific changelog, so it should just be tested on EM64T
and IA32 hardware such as Core 2 Duo and Core Solo laptops.
