Subject: [PATCH v3 6/6] RISC-V: Use IPIs for remote icache flush when possible

If IPI calls are injected using SBI IPI calls then remote icache flush
using SBI RFENCE calls is much faster because using IPIs for remote
icache flush would still endup as SBI IPI calls with extra processing
on the kernel side.

It is now possible to have specialized hardware (such as RISC-V AIA
and RISC-V ACLINT) which allows S-mode software to directly inject
IPIs without any assistance from M-mode runtime firmware.

This patch extends remote icache flush functions to use IPIs whenever
underlying IPI operations are suitable for remote FENCEs.
