*** Bug 440112 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
