+
+		Reads return split lock detection status:
+			0: disabled
+			1: enabled
+
+		Writes enable or disable split lock detection:
+			The first character is one of 'Nn0' or [oO][fF] for off
+			disables the feature.
+			The first character is one of 'Yy1' or [oO][nN] for on
+			enables the feature.
+
+		Please note the interface only shows or controls global setting.
+		During run time, split lock detection on one CPU may be
+		disabled if split lock operation in kernel code happens on
+		the CPU. The interface doesn't show or control split lock
+		detection on individual CPU.
