Subject: [PATCH 3.11 081/128] arm64: mm: Make icache synchronisation logic huge page aware -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Steve Capper <>

commit 923b8f5044da753e4985ab15c1374ced2cdf616c upstream.

The __sync_icache_dcache routine will only flush the dcache for the
first page of a compound page, potentially leading to stale icache
data residing further on in a hugetlb page.

This patch addresses this issue by taking into consideration the
order of the page when flushing the dcache.
