Reading MSRs from linux

Well, so long and there has been no updates on this blog, but here is a brief technical update.
Right now I'm trying to read some BIOS registers from linux. We have a package on Ubuntu named msr-tools which provide the commands to read the intended registers:
# apt-get install msr-tools
Then modprobe msr, and finally read your MSR register: # rdmsr 0x1A4 c # rdmsr 0x198 18b200000c00
