Subject: [RFC PATCH v7 07/16] arm64/mm, xpfo: temporarily map dcache regions

From: Juerg Haefliger <>

If the page is unmapped by XPFO, a data cache flush results in a fatal
page fault, so let's temporarily map the region, flush the cache, and then
unmap it.

v6: actually flush in the face of xpfo, and temporarily map the underlying
    memory so it can be flushed correctly
