Subject[PATCH v5 06/18] x86/msr-index: Define IA32_CORE_CAPABILITY MSR and #AC exception for split lock bit
A new IA32_CORE_CAPABILITY MSR (0xCF) is defined. Each bit in
the MSR enumerates a model specific feature. Currently bit 5 enumerates
#AC exception for split locked accesses. When bit 5 is 1, split locked
accesses will generate #AC exception. When bit 5 is 0, split locked
accesses will not generate #AC exception.

Please check the latest Intel Architecture Instruction Set Extensions
and Future Features Programming Reference for more detailed information
on the MSR and the split lock bit.
