[alpine-aports] [PATCH] non-free/intel-ucode: Update to 20170511

From: Marian Buschsieweke <marian.buschsieweke_at_ovgu.de>
Date: Mon, 26 Jun 2017 15:13:27 +0200

In the context of the recent Skylake/Kaby Lake hyper-threading bug [1], an
update of the intel microcode seems to be quite relevant. The resulting
package will contain "/boot/intel-ucode.img", which needs to be added as
first initial ram drive. This is achieved in extlinux by chaining the line

  INITRD=linux-$tag

to

  INITRD=intel-ucode.img,linux-$tag

See [2] for more details. If this packet is accepted, changing
/sbin/update-extlinux to check for "/boot/init-ucode.img" and adding it
as first INITRD on detection seems to be a good idea.

All credit goes to Thomas Bächler [3], from whom I shamelessly stole the build
recipe.
