We've only just seen this and since there's no reasonable mechanism for
finding out about updates unless you run OMSA, I thought that others may
appreciate the heads-up.

Unfortunately, the release doesn't actually say what is being patched
beyond 'microcode'.

It would be nice if there were a way of receiving notifications on such
things but oh well...
