  Yes: the Ubuntu kernel is attempting to read the 'package energy 
status' MSR, which is unsupported in bhyve.

  In 10-STABLE and CURRENT, there is a new option, "-w", which ignores 
attempts to read/write unimplemented MSRs. The option made it into 
10-STABLE on Apr 8, svn change r264273.

  You'll have to upgrade to pick up this option.
