Bug Description

[Impact]

 * New microcode is available

[Test Case]

 * There is no testcase for new microcode, as it is unknown what has changed.

[Regression Potential]

 * New microcode is published without a changelog, thus it is unknown what it fixes or regresses,
   yet it is recommeded to upgrade it. The 17h family microcode has been updated, almost doubling in size.
