x86_64 library


Fork of gz/rust-x86.

Library to program x86_64 hardware. Contains x86_64 specific data structure descriptions, data-tables, as well as convenience function to call assembly instructions typically not exposed in higher level languages.

Currently supports

  • I/O registers
  • Control registers
  • MSR registers
  • Interrupts
  • Task state
  • Querying CPUID (uses raw_cpuid library)

This library depends on libcore so it can be used in kernel level code.
