[Xen-users] general protection fault: 0000 [#1]


I have written a small kernel module to profile an event in xen. When i invoke "rdmsr", I get general protection error. As far as i understand, any kernel module is in CPL0, then rdmsr should work in kernel module. Any help ?  Below is log from syslog
