It's bothersome that these methods don't have any indication that
they're bound to local CPU when they can't be called with @pr for
another CPU as MSRs can only be accessed from local CPU.

In the longer run, it would be nice if there's an indication that this
is only for the local CPU and maybe a WARN_ON_ONCE(). Maybe dropping
@pr and using this_cpu_*() is better for performance too?

Anyways, the above doesn't make the situation any worse, so...

I think this one too fits the x86 tree better.

Thanks.
