I will add code to compensate for this strange requirement.
Please don't. Afaik there isn't any microcode yet, which needs early loading.
But there have been the first sever regressions reported:

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=847158#c18
----------------------
But early microcode update with a handcrafted initrd (like in comment #11)
causes a reboot (everything tested with plain 13.1).

So there are still more problems in this area, and just adding the ucodes to
the initrd could cause boot problems for users on certain systems.
----------------------

The stuff should be integrated automatically for factory via dracut already.
At least for Intel, AMD needs double checking.
As this is a new feature introducing sever regressions without any/much
benefit, I would not implement this as a maintenance update.

Better concentrate that ucode-intel (for Intel) package and kernel-firmware
(for AMD) is installed correctly and we should be done.
