40fd6f8... by Henrique de Moraes Holschuh on 2014-12-18

Import patches-unapplied version 2.20141028.1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 075e370861fd5e8595fa2991bb26a6eab2c36709

New changelog entries:
  * Upstream release 20141028 built from linux-firmware:
    + Updated microcode patches for family 0x15 processors
    + Added microcode patches for family 0x16 processors
  * AMD did not update the relevant microcode documentation (errata fixed,
    microcode patch levels, etc), so there is no documentation for the
    family 0x16 microcode patches, and the documentation for family 0x15 is
    stale.
  * postinst: do not update microcode on upgrades:
    Remove code that triggers a microcode update on package upgrade. The
    resulting postinst script is now identical to the one in Debian jessie's
    intel-microcode, and thus known-good.
    NOTE: this code was already disabled for the majority of the users due
    to Debian bug #723975 (closes: #723975, #723081)
  * kpreinst: remove, we don't update microcode on postinst anymore
  * blacklist automated loading of the microcode module:
    This is in line with the desired behavior of only updating microcode
    *automatically* during system boot, when it is safer to do so. The
    local admin can still load the microcode module and update the microcode
    manually at any time, of course. This is in sync with the intel-microcode
    packages in Debian jessie, which will also blacklist the microcode module.
    Note that the initramfs will force-load the microcode module in a safe
    condition, the blacklist avoids module autoloading outside the initramfs
  * control: bump standards version (no changes required)
  * copyright: update upstream URL and upstream copyright date
    (closes: #753593)
  * docs: future-proof by using a glob pattern for per-family README files
  * initramfs hook: support forced installation of amd64-microcode:
    Add a config file (/etc/default/amd64-microcode) to select the mode of
    operation: do nothing, force install to initramfs, install only when
    running on an amd64 processor (closes: #726854)
  * initramfs hook: fix (likely unexploitable) issues found by shellcheck
  * Add a NEWS.Debian file to warn users we will no longer update the
    microcode on package upgrade (note that we were not doing it on any
    Debian kernels anyway). Also document the existence of the new
    /etc/default/amd64-microcode file

8024d8c... by Henrique de Moraes Holschuh on 2013-09-07

Import patches-unapplied version 2.20131007.1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 6253208e0f2a74456d4214fff4b660bf62fc4d45

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream release, received through linux-firmware and LKML
    + updated microcode:
      sig 0x00500F10, id 0x05000029: erratum (+) 784;
      sig 0x00500F20, id 0x05000119: erratum (+) 784;
      sig 0x00600F12, id 0x0600063D: errata (-) 668, (+) 759, 778;
    + new microcode:
      sig 0x00200F31, id 0x02000032: errata 311, 316;
      sig 0x00600F20, id 0x06000822: errata 691, 699, 704, 708, 709, 734,
          740, 778;
    + This update fixes important processor bugs that cause data corruption
      or unpredictable system behaviour. It also fixes a performance issue
      and several issues that cause system lockup.
  * Switch to native package, since there is no upstream tarball

Import patches-unapplied version 2.20120910-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 8f3ee6c479c4c857bf4a61c4cc4cea74197191db

New changelog entries:
  * debian/control: update Breaks for new intel-microcode version scheme
  * Bump major version number, this will allow us to also update the stable
    branch of amd64-microcode in the future without clashing with the stable
    branch of intel-microcode. The real issue is that amd64-microcode
    1.20120910-3 and intel-microcode 1.20130222.6 have changed (in lockstep)
    to a different initramfs cooperation protocol, but I failed to bump the
    major version at that time
  * Urgency high to avoid delaying a series of high-priority intel-microcode
    updates being done at the moment: we need this version in testing before
    I can upload stable backports of intel-microcode or amd64-microcode

New changelog entries:
  * control: remove homepage and update standards-version
  * initramfs: update copyright information
  * initramfs, postinst: don't do anything on non-AMD systems (Closes: #715518)
  * initramfs, postinst: blacklist several kernel versions (Closes: #717185)
  * control: add breaks: intel-microcode (<< 1.20130222.6~)
  * load microcode module on package install/upgrade

Import patches-unapplied version 1.20120910-2 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: d7d8c06a61ac60753ce98ef3b0bfb63b5a368d31

New changelog entries:
  * initramfs: work around initramfs-tools bug #688794.
    Use "_" in place of "+-." for the initramfs script name. This works
    around a PANIC during boot when the initramfs was created in a system
    with noexec $TMPDIR.

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 4d44ccb0363199f5a4e7dae34192cb295b6a21db

New changelog entries:
  * AMD microcode release 20120910
    + updated microcode:
      sig 0x00600F12, id 0x06000629: errata (+) 691, 709, 740;
    + new microcode:
      sig 0x00610F01, id 0x06001119: errata 671, 686, 697, 698, 699, 704, 709,
          734, 740;
    + This update adds critical errata fixes for commonly used features.
      The hit probability of these errata is unknown to the Debian maintainer.
  * README.Debian: mention module-init-tools, not just kmod. This is useful
    when backporting to Debian Squeeze
  * debian/control: add Vcs-* fields

New changelog entries:
  * debian/control: priority of this package should be standard,
    not extra. All AMD-based X86 boxes should install this package
  * debian/control: update package description
  * Update ABI (first component of package version) to 1, to match
    the ABI of intel-microcode packages with /lib/firmware support
  * Update online processor cores and the initramfs image on package
    upgrade and the initramfs on package removal
  * Install initramfs-tools helpers to handle boot-time microcode
