Firmware bug after upgrading kernel

I should begin saying that I don't have almost any experience using GNU/Linux, although I am happy with Trisquel so far.
After upgrading linux-libre kernel to the last LTS version in Trisquel 7.0 I get this message during startup:

[0.000000[Firmware Bug]: TSC_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata: please update microcode to version: 0x92 or later]

I don't really know what this means. Should I be concerned? I haven't noticed any other problem after the upgrade.
Kernel version is 4.14.22-gnu

I don't think it's related, but since I started using Trisquel, the system has been unable to wake up after suspending it.

Thanks in advance.

There's a typo in the message. It said "version: 0x52 (or later)". Sorry.

Apparently the fix (which is never a fix as proprietary software is never a solution but **the** problem) is installing proprietary microcode as described here -> https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48036877/debian-firmware-bug-tsc-deadline-disabled-due-to-errata

Don't! Learn to live without suspending.

welcome to the forum btw!

Thank you! I came across that fix before, but I have never considered it an option.

Please don't install it. Proprietary software is never the solution. Linux-libre shouldn't print such messages. I'll mention it to lxo.

CPU microcode is the shittiest non-free crap you can install on your payed computer.
