You can always unconditionally print "your bios has a bug". Just like
that. Without even looking.

So no, I don't think adding a warning for this one case makes sense.

If you want to add a warning yourself, you can put it in rc.local using
userspace goodies like msr-tools. With them you can toggle that bit ad
absurdum - no need for the kernel except msr.ko.
