Subject: Re: [PATCH v10 2/8] ARM: l2c: Refactor the driver to use commit-like interface

Thanks a lot for investigating this, even before I could look into
splitting this.

Hmm, but the thing is that .configure() should not be called if the
controller is already configured, i.e. L2X0_CTRL_EN in L2X0_CTRL is
set. Maybe I missed some check somewhere. Let me reread my code I
wrote quite a long time ago and make sure.

I'll check this.

Thanks a lot, the split up version will be definitely useful. Just to
make sure, the parts look quite bisectable, but have you verified that
applying the changes one by one leave the L2 cache working on OMAP?
