This update breaks booting on my Lenovo T540p. It hangs at startup trying to run a start job on an LVM PV (which is part of a LUKS-encrypted partition).

This update contains the TSX disable change that Intel released for Haswell CPUs because TSX is broken. glibc in F21 defaults to using TSX for lock elision and it will explode if the microcode update is applied after it's running. The main solution is early microcode loading. Fedora isn't setup yet to do early microcode updates for F21 because we need to change things in the kernel and in the creation of the initramfs by default. See bug 1083716

This update prevents my / and /home and other from getting decrypted, thus making the system unusable. Also, it will of course be pulled in with today's netinst f21 reinstall.

Broke booting on my T540p. Downgrading to -7 resolved the issue.

This update has reached a karma of -3 and is being unpushed and marked as unstable

After update systemd-udev is crashed

On my ThinkPad x240 I too was affected by all the programs crashing with SIGILL trying to execute the XBEGIN instruction. After installing the latest firmware update from Lenovo, the CPU no longer advertises the "rtm" feature and everything works for me again.
