Microcode file could be shortened

Microcode file could be shortened

According to a program checker I wrote, on microcode data file ver 20090330 there are duplicates which could be merged simply ORing or ADDing processor flags fields. Here is the list:

00000695.10 equal to 695.20 - Len = 2048
00010676.40 equal to 10676.4 - Len = 4096
000006FD.80 equal to 6FD.20 - Len = 4096
000006FD.01 equal to 6FD.20 - Len = 4096
000006FD.01 equal to 6FD.80 - Len = 4096
00010676.10 equal to 10676.4 - Len = 4096
00010676.10 equal to 10676.40 - Len = 4096

I name each update with the signature field DOT flags field
Don't know if this is the right thread; should I move to another?
