Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] Implement a software workaround for Falkor erratum 1041
Date
On Falkor CPU, we’ve discovered a hardware issue which might lead to a
kernel crash or the unexpected behavior. The Falkor core may errantly
access memory locations on speculative instruction fetches. This may
happen whenever MMU translation state, SCTLR_ELn[M] bit is being changed
from enabled to disabled for the currently running exception level. To
prevent the errant hardware behavior, software must execute an ISB
immediately prior to executing the MSR that changes SCTLR_ELn[M] from a
value of 1 to 0. To simplify the complexity of a workaround, this patch
series issues an ISB whenever SCTLR_ELn[M] is changed to 0 to fix the
Falkor erratum 1041.

Patch2 from V1 series got dropped to accommodate review comments. Apply
the workaround where it's required.

Posted wrong the patches in v2.

Patch1:
- CPUTYPE definitions for Falkor CPU.

Patch2:
- Actual workaround changes for erratum E1041.

arm64: Define cputype macros for Falkor CPU
arm64: Add software workaround for Falkor erratum 1041
