Subject: [PATCH 2/6] x86/intel_rdt: Add L2 Code and Data Prioritization (CDP) support in documentation

From: Fenghua Yu <>

A new mount parameter "cdpl2" is added to enable L2 CDP in documentation.
The legacy mount parameter "cdp" is still used to enable L3 CDP.

L2 and L3 CDP can be enabled separately.

 To use the feature mount the file system:
- # mount -t resctrl resctrl [-o cdp] /sys/fs/resctrl
+ # mount -t resctrl resctrl [-o cdp[,cdpl2]] /sys/fs/resctrl
 mount options are:
 "cdp": Enable code/data prioritization in L3 cache allocations.
+"cdpl2": Enable code/data prioritization in L2 cache allocations.
+Please note: We keep the "cdp" option for enabling L3 CDP to maintain
+legacy interface. L2 and L3 CDP can be enabled separately.
 RDT features are orthogonal. A particular system may support only
 monitoring, only control, or both monitoring and control.
