Hi Peter,

I wanted to read registers 0x80002010 (BIST_MSR) , 0xA0002000
(GLD_MSR_CAP) , 0xC0002010 (MSR_DIAG_VP) and lots of others.

Yes i tested several addresses.
I now used the Debian program MSR-TOOLS (RDMSR) and that works fine.

So i'm pretty sure it is a bug.

I did cc coreboot but i got a message that the moderator had to approve
it ....
Maybe because i have a new mail address.

Thanks, Nils.
