Probably. Is it just the file position for msr_write()? Should the register
number increment with the copy loop?

What about for the X86_IOC_WRMSR_REGS ioctl? What's the reg number there?

And do you know where wrmsr_safe_regs() might be found? I can see things
using it and exporting it, but no implementation, so I'm guessing it's
macroised somewhere.
