CentOS 7 - Updates for x86_64: system environment/base: microcode_ctl

microcode_ctl - Tool to transform and deploy CPU microcode update for x86.

Website: https://pagure.io/microcode_ctl
License: GPLv2+ and Redistributable, no modification permitted
Vendor: CentOS
Description:
The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the microcode driver written
by Tigran Aivazian <tigran@aivazian.fsnet.co.uk>.

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.
