[PATCH] arc: Keep D$ enabled to work-around incomplete SLC flushing




As reported in STAR 9001165532 if D$ is disabled SLC is not flushed
correctly which leads to loses of some data that were set before the flush.
That causes unexpected behavior after the flush.

For now just keep D$ enabled, only flush-invalidate it before IOC setup.
