Subject[PATCH 09/46] KVM: handle AMD microcode MSR
Date
From: Andre Przywara <andre.przywara@amd.com>

Windows 7 tries to update the CPU's microcode on some processors,
so we ignore the MSR write here. The patchlevel register is already handled
(returning 0), because the MSR number is the same as Intel's.
