[PATCH] MIPS: Flush cache after DMA_FROM_DEVICE for agressively speculative CPUs

From: Leonid Yegoshin
Date: Wed May 13 2015 - 21:49:35 EST

Some MIPS CPUs have an aggressive speculative load and may erroneuosly load
some cache line in the middle of DMA transaction. CPU discards result but cache
doesn't. If DMA happens from device then additional cache invalidation is needed
on that CPU's after DMA.

Found in test.
