Subject[PATCH 09/15] x86/split_lock: Explicitly enable or disable #AC for split locked accesses
Date
By default, we don't set or clear the bit 29 in TEST_CTL MSR 0x33 and
the bit is inherited from BIOS/hardware setting.

The kernel parameter "split_lock_ac=on/off" explicitly sets or clears
the bit during boot time.
