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

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.

From 440112:

It was just discovered that some buggy microcode fragments were mistakenly
included in the last version Red Hat pulled into 4.7. Intel is posting a new
version to downloadcenter.intel.com (search for "processor microcode", pick some
recent processor, select Linux). The version should be 20080401.
