- It seems like there should be a way to revert the msr back after flashing
is completed to put the bios back in write protect mode. Is there a cleanup mechanism available? Something like disable_flash...
Unfortunately no. Any patches that generically implement such a mechanism are welcome though!
+#define _LARGEFILE64_SOURCE +#include <sys/types.h> +#include <sys/stat.h> +#include <fcntl.h> +#include <unistd.h>
- unsigned long addr = 0x1808;
- lseek64(fd_msr, (off64_t) addr, SEEK_SET);
Why do you use/need large file support for seeking to an offset of 0x1808 ?
Thats original generic MSR behavior from rdmsr/wrmsr - we need the large file support to access the high MSRs (0x80000000) and above. Its not needed in this case - but is it hurting?
