[PATCH 1/3] ARM: cache-l2c: Add flag to skip cache unlocking

From: Sjoerd Simons
Date: Mon May 11 2015 - 18:17:50 EST

The L2C cache should only be unlocked when the cache is setup to allow
that. In the common case the l2x0 driver sets up the cache for that to
be the case (e.g. setting L310_AUX_CTRL_NS_LOCKDOWN on L2C-310), making
unlock safe. However when a secure firmware is in use, it may not be
possible for the L2c to be configured that way making unlocking unsafe.

To handle that case add a flag to skip unlocking the cache for machine
where this can't be done safely.
