Subject[PATCH v3] arm64: Add support for new control bits CTR_EL0.DIC and CTR_EL0.IDC
Date
The DCache clean & ICache invalidation requirements for instructions
to be data coherence are discoverable through new fields in CTR_EL0.
The following two control bits DIC and IDC were defined for this
purpose. No need to perform point of unification cache maintenance
operations from software on systems where CPU caches are transparent.

This patch optimize the three functions __flush_cache_user_range(),
clean_dcache_area_pou() and invalidate_icache_range() if the hardware
reports CTR_EL0.IDC and/or CTR_EL0.IDC. Basically it skips the two
instructions 'DC CVAU' and 'IC IVAU', and the associated loop logic
in order to avoid the unnecessary overhead.

CTR_EL0.DIC: Instruction cache invalidation requirements for
instruction to data coherence. The meaning of this bit[29].
0: Instruction cache invalidation to the point of unification
is required for instruction to data coherence.
1: Instruction cache cleaning to the point of unification is
not required for instruction to data coherence.

CTR_EL0.IDC: Data cache clean requirements for instruction to data
coherence. The meaning of this bit[28].
0: Data cache clean to the point of unification is required for
instruction to data coherence, unless CLIDR_EL1.LoC == 0b000
or (CLIDR_EL1.LoUIS == 0b000 && CLIDR_EL1.LoUU == 0b000).
1: Data cache clean to the point of unification is not required
for instruction to data coherence.
