microcode_ctl - Tool to transform and deploy CPU microcode update for x86.
|License:||GPLv2+ and Redistributable, no modification permitted|
The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the microcode driver written by Tigran Aivazian <firstname.lastname@example.org>. The microcode update is volatile and needs to be uploaded on each system boot i.e. it doesn't reflash your cpu permanently, reboot and it reverts back to the old microcode.
