Sadly, given your other email, I doubt it will work, because of the big
catch all regarding the lock prefix.

A brief scan over the Intel manuals and I cant see a case where an
incorrect LOCK prefix would cause #GPF rather than #UD.

Perhaps try changing it to EXP_UD instead of EXP_GP.  (Although I make
no guarantee that this wont cause a lot of things to break.)
