ARM: 8169/1: l2c: parse cache properties from ePAPR definitions
When both 'cache-size' and 'cache-sets' are specified for a L2 cache controller node, parse those properties and set up the set size based on which type of L2 cache controller we are using. Update the L2 cache controller Device Tree binding with the optional 'cache-size', 'cache-sets', 'cache-block-size' and 'cache-line-size' properties. These come from the ePAPR specification. Using the cache size, number of sets and cache line size we can calculate desired associativity of the L2 cache. This is done by the calculation: set size = cache size / sets ways = set size / line size way size = cache size / ways = sets * line size associativity = cache size / way size Example output from the PB1176 DT that look like this: L2: l2-cache { compatible = "arm,l220-cache"; (...) arm,override-auxreg; cache-size = <131072>; // 128kB cache-sets = <512>; cache-line-size = <32>; }; Ends up like this: L2C OF: override cache size: 131072 bytes (128KB) L2C OF: override line size: 32 bytes L2C OF: override way size: 16384 bytes (16KB) L2C OF: override associativity: 8 L2C: DT/platform modifies aux control register: 0x02020fff -> 0x02030fff L2C-220 cache controller enabled, 8 ways, 128 kB L2C-220: CACHE_ID 0x41000486, AUX_CTRL 0x06030fff Which is consistent with the value earlier hardcoded for the PB1176 platform. This patch is an extended version based on the initial patch by Florian Fainelli.
