We can even get a nice diagnostic message since the handler
has access to "regs". It can print which MSR (regs->cx) and
where it happened (regs->ip).

Which sounds like you might want a specific ex_handler_rdmsr
function rather than a generic ex_handler_panic.

Maybe same deal for wrmsr() too? That would also print edx:eax
so you could see what was being written.
