This update for kernel-firmware fixes the following issues:

  • Add microcode_amd_fam17h.bin (bsc#1068032 CVE-2017-5715)

This new firmware enables the Indirect Branch Control (IBC) feature on AMD
family 17h processor to mitigate an attack on the branch predictor that
could lead to information disclosure from e.g. kernel memory (bsc#1068032
CVE-2017-5715).
