At the time when the probe is done, the IDT entries for exceptions are
already set. You can use rdmsr_safe() instead of rdmsr() to read Hyper-V
timecounter register. Then, a fault definitely indicates that the kernel
is not executing on the compatible Hyper-V emulator. Hopefully, a
non-fault read is not impossible for undesired cases.
