Subject[PATCH v5 12/18] x86/split_lock: Enable #AC for split lock by default
Date
Split locked access locks bus and degradates overall memory access
performance. When split lock detection feature is enumerated, we want to
enable the feature by default to find any split lock issue and then fix
the issue.
