openSUSE-RU-2013:1948-1: moderate: kernel-firmware: already load AMD CPU microcode in the initial ramdisk
openSUSE Recommended Update: kernel-firmware: already load AMD CPU microcode
in the initial ramdisk
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2013:1948-1
Rating: moderate
References: #847158
Affected Products:
openSUSE 13.1
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.

Description:


kernel-firmware was updated to also load AMD microcode in
the initial ramdisk, hooking into mkinitrd if necessary.

- Add mkinitrd script to add AMD microcode to initrd. This
is needed because microcode driver is built in or gets
loaded automatically via udev early. Therefore the
microcode has to be available in initrd already. This
must not be mixed up with early micorcode loading. This
feature will not be implemented via mkinitrd. Dracut is
doing early microcode loading.
- bnc#847158
- mkinitrd scripts:
- mkinitrd_setup-amd_microcode.sh Adding microcode to
the initrd
- mkinitrd_boot-amd_microcode.sh Triggering the reload
at boot
- Correct Supplements string so that the package gets
correctly installed on machines with AMD CPUs bnc#847158
