That don't make sense.

Looking at the BKDG Fam 15h 60h-6Fh these MSRs are per compute unit.
This means you can do much finer grained measurements than system wide
-- which is all hwmon seems capable of.

Not to mention the proposed code is horrible, who in their right mind
does two rdmsrl_safe_on_cpu() back to back.
