intel-microcode-20170707


Kaby Lake People --

The latest intel-microcode-20170707 includes support for four additional Processors.

Maybe you can reenable HT in your BIOS if you've disabled it ?

The latest SBo Package is at 14.2 > System > intel-microcode (20170707)

EDIT: Many thanks to LQ user atelszewski for the intel-microcode.SlackBuild !

Installed last night's Slackware64 14.2 updates, SBo intel-microcode ( 20170707 ) and linux-4.4.77 on my work Laptop.

All is well on my Laptop with the 4.4.77 GENERIC and HUGE Kernels along with the intel-microcode update.

Note that there was no update for my CPU ( the Intel i7-6700K is still on the oxba microcode version )
Code:
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 94
model name      : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz
stepping        : 3
microcode       : 0xba
-- kjh

These are my lilo entries:
Code:
image    = /boot/vmlinuz-huge-4.4.77.kjh
  root   = /dev/sda3
  initrd = /boot/intel-ucode.cpio
  label  = Linux4477H.kjh
  read-only
image    = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-4.4.77.kjh
  root   = /dev/sda3
  initrd = /boot/initrd-generic-4.4.77.kjh-ucode.gz
  label  = Linux4477G.kjh
  read-only
This is a dmesg summary for the 4.4.77.kjh GENERIC Kernel
Code:
[    0.000000] microcode: CPU0 microcode updated early to revision 0xba, date = 2017-04-09

This is the same dmesg summary for 4.4.77 HUGE:
Code:
[    0.000000] microcode: CPU0 microcode updated early to revision 0xba, date = 2017-04-09
[    0.000000] Command line: BOOT_IMAGE=Linux4477H.kjh ro root=803 vt.default_utf8=0 elevator=noop ipv6.disable=1

[    7.251480] microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.01 <tigran@aivazian.fsnet.co.uk>, Peter Oruba
[   29.555895] userif-0: sent link up event.
Note for 55020: when all is said and done, for me and mine, HUGE boots faster to the init 3 login prompt than GENERIC on my SSD-equipped Laptop ( YMMV ) ...

This is the command I used to grep out the dmesg lines ( the userif-0 lines are the last lines before the login prompt appears on my Laptop )

Code:
( dmesg |grep -e 'Command line' -e microcode ;  dmesg |grep -- userif-0 |tail -1  ; )
