Description John Clark 2013-06-11 22:30:01 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.

Thank you!

Fix: Simply apply the attached patch and reinstall the port.
