FreeBSD Bugzilla – Bug 179499
[patch] port sysutils/devcpu-data is unmaintained and needs update for recent Intel and AMD releases
Last modified: 2014-06-04 19:27:48 UTC
The sysutils/devcpu-data port needs an update to install the latest microcode updates released by Intel and AMD for their popular x86 families of microprocessors. Attached is a patch that modifies this port to fetch the manufacturer release bundles and build the files required by FreeBSD's microcode update tool (/usr/sbin/cpucontrol) from them.
I noticed that this port is unmaintained, so I volunteer to maintain it. I would like to get more involved with FreeBSD, and this looks a good place to start. The attached patch includes a change to MAINTAINER.
Fix: Simply apply the attached patch and reinstall the port.
