Intel IA32/IA64 CPU Microcode Utility

The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the IA32 microcode driver:

 - it decodes and sends new microcode to the kernel driver for Intel IA32
   family (Pentium Pro, PII, Celeron, PIII, Xeon, Pentium 4, etc.) and
   Intel x86_64 family processors;
 - it signals the kernel driver to release any buffers it may hold.

The microcode update does not permanently alter the CPU and must be performed each time the system is booted.
