Intel microcode which fixes several cve's

Asked by Léon Hagenaars-Keus on 2017-11-21

Intel released a new microcode file (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27337/Linux-Processor-Microcode-Data-File) which fixes several cve's (CVE-2017-5705, CVE-2017-5708, CVE-2017-5711 and CVE-2017-5712, see https://security-center.intel.com/advisory.aspx?intelid=INTEL-SA-00086&languageid=en-fr).
What is the timeframe we can expect this microcode in the intel-microcode package?
Is it possible to test this, or to track it's progress to the ubuntu package repository?
