One more thing I found is that I have done these changes

and run MSR with 1
make defconfig && make CONFIG_XILINX_MICROBLAZE0_USE_MSR_INSTR=1
arch/microblaze/kernel/setup.o
it errors #error MSR is enabled
and all is good.

And when I run MSR with 0
make defconfig && make CONFIG_XILINX_MICROBLAZE0_USE_MSR_INSTR=0
arch/microblaze/kernel/setup.o
also getting #error MSR is enabled
which is wrong.

Is there any rule what can be setup at compilation time?

Thanks,
Michal
