The register addresses for the *_CONFIG and *_COUNT registers
are interleaved. From hyperv-tlfs.h:

#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER0_CONFIG 0x400000B0
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER0_COUNT 0x400000B1
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER1_CONFIG 0x400000B2
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER1_COUNT 0x400000B3
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER2_CONFIG 0x400000B4
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER2_COUNT 0x400000B5
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER3_CONFIG 0x400000B6
#define HV_X64_MSR_STIMER3_COUNT 0x400000B7
