Emulate split-lock accesses as writes if split lock detection is on to
avoid #AC during emulation, which will result in a panic().  This should
never occur for a well behaved guest, but a malicious guest can
manipulate the TLB to trigger emulation of a locked instruction[1].

More discussion can be found [2][3].
