To my knowledge, there is no such MSR for P4 Hyper-Threaded CPUs using
the NetBurst Architecture. So SerialICE may need a patch for
hyper-threaded CPUs to enable Cache-As-Ram, like coreboot does.
You've seen my cache-as-ram code with SIPIs for model f25 (P4 Xeon on
socket 604), to enable cache on HT-enabled CPU.

code PCI device, make wise use of it.
