Backporting intel-microcode to 16.04 LTS for errata fix

I find the intel-microcode package in Ubuntu 16.04 is heavily outdated
(3.20151106.1) leaving many Intel Skylake and Kaby Lake systems
vulnerable to incorrect program flow/state due to a processor errata

This seems like sufficient rationale to backport the package
(3.20170511.1) from Artful which carries the updated microcode to
address the errata.

What's the consensus here?
