Bug description:
  To reproduce install lubuntu 415 i386 on a t6500 core 2 duo cpu. I know I am installing 32 bit on 64 but it will show like in with both a braodcom 4322 which I have not yet installed the prorpietary driver and this intel cpu. Open additional drivers from the menu in lxde. 
    Installed: 0.96.4
    Candidate: 0.96.4

  Description:	Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
  Release:	15.04
  https://gist.github.com/dabcbbc9bdcb7ed8d87d is the hardware tracker profile for this laptop. 

  I expected software-properties-gtk to not say my processor is unkown
  and not working because I have not installed the latest microcode.
  Instead it said this device which can use the proprietary intel
  microcode driver is unknown and not working and the only device this
  makes sense to be is the cpu.

  I have a screenshot attached of the messages that make no sense.
