I'd like to see it recommend the instalation of (or just install by default)
system processor microcode update packages when non-free is enabled on a x86
arch (i386 or amd64) and the running processor is either Intel or AMD
(easily identified by a grep in /proc/cpuinfo).

I'm willing to help write and test this, but I need a few pointers.
