I've been working on my own update to this port for sometime, where
the stumbling block has been trying to locate a tool to decode
AMD microcode files.
So, I'm happy to see that this port got updated and includes a tool
that handles both Intel and AMD microcode files.
However, I was disappointed that the microcode files don't appear to
be any newer than before. Namely I had been trying to update the port
to microcode-20130906. I actually don't currently have any amd
processors, but wanted to incorporate the latest (amd-ucode-latest.tar.bz2)
for completeness. On Debian, the files are the same as source for
amd64-microcode-2.20131007.1+really20130710.1, and the files have a
datestamp of 20130907. While all the files on amd64.org have a date
stamp of 20130927 and the files are dated 20130925.
The amd-ucode-2012-09-10.tar file extracts to reveal that its a
duplicate of amd-ucode-2012-01-17.
In checking Intel site, found that latest microcode file is 20140430.
Wonder what the newer revision for my CPU brings?
Update port to use 'microcode-20140430.tgz' and
