This issue has been discussed several times, and this URL gives a list
of all messages on linux-arm-kernel that mention __sync_icache_dcache:

https://archive.armlinux.org.uk/lurker/search/20380101.000000.00000000@ml:linux-arm-kernel,sb:__sync_icache_dcache.en.html

At the beginning of March, Boris Ostrovsky pointed that another solution
is available that does not need architecture private symbols to be
exported.

Since I've already said in a previous thread that I don't want this
function exported, it seems the way forward is pretty obvious.
