Actually, we added the filtering to catch exactly such misuses and,
lemme check what is the proper word now... /me checks, aha, adding new
MSRs to the "passlist" is the wrong thing to do.

Srinivas, can you pls convert this in-tree driver to use a proper sysfs
interface for that mailbox MSR and also work with the intel-undervolt
author - I hope I have the right person CCed from the git repo on github
- to come up with a proper interface so that we can drop this MSR use
too.

Thx.
