>>> What it does
***************************************************************************
Deploy an Intel microcode. This tool is obsolete and the microcode is the
subject to be distributed via kernel-firmware, however Intel still does not
supply the microcode in a form consumable by the Linux's microcode driver. So
that this tool transform Intel's microcode as well as deploy it.
