Microcode uploader implementation

Date of insert: 02/08/2012; Verified: Icon Ambox.png Not specified, date when created; GSoC: Yes
Mentor: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk <>
Skills Needed:
Description: Intel is working on early implementation where the microcode blob would be appended to the initrd image. The kernel would scan for the appropiate magic constant and load the microcode very early. The Xen hypervisor can do this similarly.
Steps: Icon Ambox.png Not specified, necessary steps to accomplish project goal
References: Icon Ambox.png Not specified, useful references (mail threads / manuals / web pages) for students to learn background and motivation of the project. If the references are inlined in description, simply write "References inline in description".

This section contains GSoC Projects that have been reviewed by Xen Maintainers and Committers. Community members are free to add their own project ideas, but these need to add them in the Unreviewed Project Ideas section of this document.

Rules and Advice for Adding Ideas

  • Be creative
  • Use the Template:GSoC Project template to encode ideas on this page. Please read the Template Documentation before you do so.
  • Be specific: what do you want to be implemented; if at all possible provide an indication of size and complexity as described above to make it easier for a student to choose ideas
  • If you are willing to mentors those ideas, add your name and email to the idea.
  • If you're an interested student, add your name and email next to the idea. It is ok to have several students interested by one idea.
  • Aspiring students need to get in touch with the community manager via to register their interest
