Subject: [PATCH v6 08/20] x86/split_lock: Enumerate split lock detection on Icelake mobile processor

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.

A few other processors may also have the 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.
