SubjectRE: [PATCH v10 6/6] x86/split_lock: Enable split lock detection by kernel parameter

As we've been looking for potential split lock issues in kernel code, most of
the ones we found relate to callers who have <=32 bits and thus stick:

u32 flags;

in their structure. So it would solve those places, and fix any future code
where someone does the same thing.
