Subject: [PATCH v7 6/6] x86/split_lock: Fix the split lock #AC handling when running as guest

From: Xiaoyao Li <xiaoyao.li@...el.com>

If running as guest and hypervisor enables
MSR_TEST_CTRL.SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT during its running, it can get split
lock #AC even though sld_state is sld_off.

For kernel mode #AC, it always dies("split lock"), no more action
needed.

For user mode #AC, it should treat sld_off (default state when feature
is not available) as fatal as well.
