I am going to try it out when 4.4.141 is released.

Is there a difference between using it with 4.4.132 vs 4.4.141? I've applied the patch, but it doesn't look like there were any microcode updates to my aging Haswell i7-4810MQ. I assume the newer kernel has fixes in it for vulns.

According to Intel's latest release of "microcode revision guidance" (July 13 2018) the i7-4810MQ, which is not listed but only his closest model i7-4800MQ, has the latest MCU Rev 0x25 (page 8 - first section - Haswell M)

Usually the firmware release note (also available inside the tgz archive) describes which CPU models received an update:
== 20180703 Release ==
-- Updates upon 20180425 release --
