Vendor: CentOS
Description:
The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the microcode driver written
by Tigran Aivazian <tigran@aivazian.fsnet.co.uk>.

The microcode update is volatile and needs to be uploaded on each system
boot i.e. it doesn't reflash your cpu permanently, reboot and it reverts
back to the old microcode.
