If the "vanilla" useflag for sys-firmware/intel-microcode is disabled, the ebuild installs this package:
https://dev.gentoo.org/~whissi/dist/intel-microcode/intel-microcode-collection-${COLLECTION_SNAPSHOT}.tar.xz

What exactly is this?

Added 210+ additional microcode updates (for production, no beta release!), which are signed by Intel and publicly available
but are not distributed via Intel's microcode tarball for marketing/product phase out reasons. You can prevent the usage of
these microcode updates and stick with content from Intel's official release tarball via new "vanilla" USE flag.
