Subject[PATCH] MIPS: Fix HIGHMEM crash in __update_cache().
Date
Commit 8b5fe5e54b47 ("MIPS: Fix race condition in lazy cache flushing.")
triggered NULL pointer dereferences on systems with HIGHMEM.

The problem was caused by not clearing the PG_dcache_dirty flag in
flush_icache_page() and thus we enter __update_cache() that lacks
support for HIGHMEM.
