Calling split_lock_verify_msr() with X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT=0 is
intentional, the idea is to ensure SLD is disabled on all CPUs, e.g. in the
unlikely scenario that BIOS enabled SLD.

The first rdmsrl_safe() should short circuit split_lock_verify_msr() if
the RDMSR faults, i.e. it might fault, but it shouldn't WARN. Are you
seeing issues or was this found via code inspection?
