[PATCH 1/4] MIPS: Flush dcache for flush_kernel_dcache_page
From: Paul Burton
Date: Mon Feb 29 2016 - 21:38:58 EST
The flush_kernel_dcache_page function was previously essentially a nop.
This is incorrect for MIPS, where if a page has been modified & either
it aliases or it's executable & the icache doesn't fill from dcache then
the content needs to be written back from dcache to the next level of
the cache hierarchy (which is shared with the icache).
Implement this by simply calling flush_dcache_page, treating this
kmapped cache flush function (flush_kernel_dcache_page) exactly the same
as its non-kmapped counterpart (flush_dcache_page).
