[PATCH/RFC] ARM: Add workaround for I-Cache line size mismatch between CPU cores




Some big.LITTLE systems have mismatch of I-Cache line size between
LITTLE and big cores. This patch adds workaround for proper I-Cache
support on such systems. Without it, some kind of userspace code
(typically self-modifying) might suffer from random SIGILL failures.

Similar workaround exists for ARM64 architecture, added by commit
116c81f427ff ("arm64: Work around systems with mismatched cache line
sizes").

Signed-off-by: Marek Szyprowski <m.szyprowski@xxxxxxxxxxx>

This workaround is needed on all supported Exynos big.LITTLE SoCs: 5420,
5422 and 5800.
