The file at https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/x86/early-microcode.txt
gives a method that should allow creating a combined initrd img file that
anyone booting with refind EFI may be able to test. There are suggested
methods to implement early microcode loading for the other main bootloaders
in the arch wiki, but until now for refind it seems not to have been
verified to work. It would be nice to see verification that early microcode
loading has been successful using all the main bootloaders/bootmanagers, as
well as direct efistub boot.
