"driver/misc/lkdtm.c" will use this flush_icache_range().

And some architectures export it to modules.

  [root@...en arch]# grep -rn flush_icache_range * | grep EXPORT
  arm64/mm/flush.c:105:EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_icache_range);
  avr32/mm/cache.c:114:EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_icache_range);
  m68k/mm/cache.c:106:EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_icache_range);
  mn10300/mm/cache-inv-icache.c:129:EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_icache_range);
  mn10300/mm/cache-flush-icache.c:155:EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_icache_range);
  sparc/mm/init_64.c:435:EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_icache_range);


Welcome any more details information by any other members, thanks.
