NAMEmsr - x86 CPU MSR access device
DESCRIPTION/dev/cpu/CPUNUM/msrprovides an interface to read and write the model-specific registers (MSRs) of an x86 CPU. CPUNUMis the number of the CPU to access as listed in /proc/cpuinfo.
The register access is done by opening the file and seeking to the MSR number as offset in the file, and then reading or writing in chunks of 8 bytes. An I/O transfer of more than 8 bytes means multiple reads or writes of the same register.
NOTESThe msrdriver is not auto-loaded. On modular kernels you might need to use the following command to load it explicitly before use:
$ modprobe msr
