Another (last) open issue is: What loads the microcode.ko driver?
Afaik Andi worked on autoloading CPU specific drivers, any news here?
Otherwise something static has to be added to udev, e.g. catching a
CPU add event, check and load microcode driver on all Intel and all
AMD fam10h or newer.
Google points to this patch (from the dir name it seem to
come from Matthew):
Did this get rejected, do you plan to get this mainline?
From a quick look I'd say the ven, fam, mod and stp strings
shoult not be needed and an arch "column" could be added to
differ different cpu architecture specific cpu aliases:
But in general this should be the way to go for cpu
If this is old or got stuck, I'd like to understand the missing
bits and would give it another try to get it mainline
if it makes sense.
