_Description: Download Intel CPU microcodes now?
 The microcode.ctl package needs the Intel microcodes for its operation.
 These microcodes are non-free software and cannot distributed
 within the package. They can be downloaded from the Internet (the
 expected download size is about 300-400Kb).
 If you do not choose to download the microcodes now, please read
 /usr/share/doc/microcode.ctl/README.Debian and download the needed
 files manually or by running the '/usr/sbin/update-intel-microcode'

Description: Intel IA32/IA64 CPU Microcode Utility
 The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the IA32 microcode
  - it decodes and sends new microcode to the kernel driver for Intel IA32
    family (Pentium Pro, PII, Celeron, PIII, Xeon, Pentium 4, etc.) and
    Intel x86_64 family processors;
  - it signals the kernel driver to release any buffers it may hold.
 The microcode update does not permanently alter the CPU and must be
 performed each time the system is booted.
