Subject[PATCH v7 08/21] x86/split_lock: Enumerate split lock detection on Icelake mobile processor
Date
Icelake mobile processor can detect split lock operations although
the processor doesn't have MSR IA32_CORE_CAPABILITY and split lock
detection bit in the MSR. Set split lock detection feature bit
X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT on the processor based on its
family/model/stepping.

In the future, a few other processors may also have the split lock
detection feature but don't have MSR IA32_CORE_CAPABILITY. The feature
will be enumerated on those processors once their family/model/stepping
information is released.
