iucode_tool is a program to manipulate IntelĀ® X86 and X86-64 processor
microcode collections, and to use the kernel facilities to upgrade the
microcode on Intel system processors.
It can load microcode data files in text and binary format, sort, list and
filter the microcodes contained in these files, write selected microcodes to a
new file in binary format, or upload them to the kernel.
It operates on non-free microcode data downloaded directly from Intel or
installed by the intel-microcode package.

Changelog

2014-10-28 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.1.1-1~bpo70+1) wheezy-backports; urgency=medium
* Rebuild for wheezy-backports (no changes)
2014-10-28 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
+ Fix issues found by the Coverity static checker:
+ CID 72165: An off-by-one error caused an out-of-bounds write to a
buffer while loading large microcode data files in ascii format
+ CID 72163: The code could attempt to close an already closed file
descriptor in certain conditions when processing directories
+ CID 72161: Stop memory leak in error path when loading microcode
data files
+ CID 72159, 72164, 72166, 72167, 72168, 72169: Cosmetic issues
that could not cause problems at runtime
* debian/control: bump standards version to 3.9.6
2014-09-14 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.1-1~bpo70+1) wheezy-backports; urgency=medium
* Rebuild for wheezy-backports (no changes)
2014-09-12 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
+ Don't output duplicates for microcodes with extended signatures
to the same file or to the kernel
+ When writing an early initramfs, pad its trailer with zeros to
the next 1024-byte boundary.  This is done so that the next
initramfs segment will be better aligned, just in case.  The
entire cpio medatada overhead is now exactly 1024 bytes
+ Manpage style fixes: use iucode_tool consistently, groff formatting
+ Refuse to load ridiculously large data files (limit set to 1GiB)
* debian/lintian-override: override hyphen-used-as-minus-sign
as iucode-tool(8) now uses proper groff hyphens, but not in
a way the lintian test can detect.
* debian/rules: remove autoconf-1.14 autogenerated files on clean
2014-08-12 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.0.3-1~bpo70+1) wheezy-backports; urgency=medium
* Rebuild for wheezy-backports (no changes required)
2014-08-12 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.0.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
+ Properly check microcode metadata date to be valid packed BCD in
strict mode
+ Do not assume a non-zero microcode Total Size field to be valid, it
is valid only when the Data Size field is non-zero.  Fortunately,
Intel always set reserved fields to zero on released microcode, so
this bug was never (and is unlikely to ever be) triggered
+ Linux kernel bug workaround: when generating the early initramfs
archive, append NULs to the microcode data file name to pad the
start of the microcode data inside the initramfs archive to a
16-byte boundary.  Document this issue on the manpage, the
workaround is only effective if the start of our early initramfs
cpio segment is 16-byte aligned in the final initramfs archive
+ Fix several cosmetic and minor code issues
+ Manpage fixes and enhancements
* debian/control: add debian/master branch information to Vcs-Git field
* debian/control: bump standards-version to 3.9.5
2014-05-11 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.0.2-1~bpo70+1) wheezy-backports; urgency=low
* Rebuild for wheezy-backports (no changes required)
2014-05-10 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (1.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream maintenance release
+ Mention iucode-tool's new home at gitorious in documentation
+ Warn user when --scan-system fails due to errors such as a lack
of permission to access the cpuid devices
+ Use the libc optimized memcmp() to compare microcode
+ Minor manpage updates
+ --strict-checks now verifies that the microcode update date
is not utterly insane
* debian/control: update for new upstream location at Gitorious
