Yes that's what I meant. You see, you don't flush the cache for
sama5d3 so it shouldn't be required either for sam5d4. You should be
able to test it quickly and see if L1 flush is indeed required by
replacing flush_cache_all() with outer_flush_all(). BTW is highly
probable that L2 cache flush is done in outer_disable() so calling
outer_flush_all() is probably no required.

However the more I think on it, the more I wonder about the reason why
L2 flushing is required or to put it differently: is flusing the L2
cache the correct thing to do or just a workaround ?
Could it be that L2 is doing some maintenance operation when DDR
enters self refresh? In that case maybe a simple cache sync could be
used.
