Subject[PATCH V37 13/29] x86/msr: Restrict MSR access when the kernel is locked down
From
From: Matthew Garrett <mjg59@srcf.ucam.org>

Writing to MSRs should not be allowed if the kernel is locked down, since
it could lead to execution of arbitrary code in kernel mode. Based on a
patch by Kees Cook.
