No idea. The git 132ec92f says:

    x86, msr: Add rd/wrmsr interfaces with preset registers

    native_{rdmsr,wrmsr}_safe_regs are two new interfaces which allow
    presetting of a subset of eight x86 GPRs before executing the rd/wrmsr
    instructions. This is needed at least on AMD K8 for accessing an erratum
    workaround MSR.

    Originally based on an idea by H. Peter Anvin.
