I'm using Xen 4.4 on Gentoo (no xend, just xl) now. Including working
microcode update through Xen.

Anyhow, there are several things that would be Gentoo specific or Debian

- only Gentoo seems to acually install a copy of microcode.dat. At least
Debian (and Ubuntu) don't ship it. Only the microcode in
/lib/firmware/intel-ucode is available. I couldn't find the Fedora
microcode package to take a look at it.
- Debian (and Ubuntu) have the iucode_tool available as a package. Other
distributions don't (including Fedora and Gentoo). Probably, because the
author of that tool is a Debian guy.

Also, so far, we've only covered Intel microcode. What about AMD microcode?
