I'm not sure off the top of my head.

You can add ucode=scan to the xen command line, add a file /path/to/microcode_file as the last item in your boot list, and generate that microcode
file using something like:

iucode_tool --write-earlyfw "${OUT_BLOB_FILE}" \
            "${TEMP_DIR_NAME}/intel-ucode" \

Where the last two items have been extracted from the intel microcode tarball.
