More tests:

- purging intel-microcode & iucode-tool, then rebooting, i get:
kernel: [Firmware Bug]: TSC_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata; please update microcode to version: 0xb2 (or later)

- reinstalling the 2 packages above (3.20180312.0~ubuntu18.04.1) and rebooting, i get:
 kernel: microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0xc2, date = 2017-11-16

As previously, purging then reinstalling still show that old version. Is it an initrd path issue ?

- running: (cpio -t; zcat | cpio -t) < /boot/initrd.img-4.15.0-12-generic
