I can confirm I get power readings on my fam16hmod30h board once I apply a
trivial patch to the driver. I'll send the patch in a separate e-mail.

That's what I thought. I'm trying to read the value using the /dev/msr
interface from userspace and I get weird results.

Jx: read 62d299b84
PTSC MSR: read 72fe92

sleep 5ms

Jy: read 631b453b9
PTSC MSR: read 46b25

this happens about half the time (PTSC going backwards). Though
admittedly the problem could somehow be in the MSR code I'm using.

I have an actual wall-mounted power meter hooked up to my system and the
difference from idle to all-cores-busy is 20W, so I would think that that
the results we find with perf should be >1W at least.
