Intel Continuing to Work on Spectre/Meltdown Patches

Navin Shenoy, of Intel, says they have found the problem with the reboot issue on Broadwell and Haswell firmware updates and they have released more microcode for their Skylake platforms to the OEMs. The plan is to continue to test the updates and release them as soon as possible to the field. When it's all said and done Intel wants us to be patient and continue to update our systems as firmware becomes available. You heard it here first.......hurry up and wait.
