What about a pair of helpers written in C instead?

v7_flush_dcache_all() could be renamed, and a wrapper function called
v7_flush_dcache_all() would call the preemption disable helper, call the
former v7_flush_dcache_all code, then call the preemption enable helper.

Then __v7_setup() could still call the core cache flush code without
issues.
