    On the short term, this allows us to get the mitigation against
    Spectre (CVE-2017-5715).
    
    While this could be done via our freeze exception mechanism, instead I chose to
    bump APT snapshots and add APT pinning to install these packages from sid for
    the foreseeable future: keeping CPU microcode up-to-date has become an important
    factor in securing systems these days and such security updates land faster in
    sid than anywhere else in Debian.
