Packages changed:

ucode-intel (20180108 -> 20171117)

So this reverts the microcode patches (also) for Skylake, correct?

Yes.

According to changelog it contains microcode with fixes for
CVE-2017-5715 on top of 20171117 Intel release.

I reverted that even more to the pre-Spectre release for now.

Any words on the influence regarding Meltdown/Spectre? Are the other
(kernel)
measures 'good enough' also w/o microcode update?

Spectre v1 and Meltdown mitigations are not microcode dependend
and are present.
