Inteltool can dump the msrs but it will not parse the bit values the  
fine way msrtool does.

Maybe we should remove the intel focus from inteltool and merge the  
two utilities, call it systemtool or chipsettool instead? Stuff like  
dumping pmbase might be interesting for non-intel systems too, while  
intel systems could gain from a more detailed msr dumper...
