    arm64: trap userspace "dc cvau" cache operation on errata-affected core · 7dd01aef

    The ARM errata 819472, 826319, 827319 and 824069 for affected
    Cortex-A53 cores demand to promote "dc cvau" instructions to
    "dc civac". Since we allow userspace to also emit those instructions,
    we should make sure that "dc cvau" gets promoted there too.
    So lets grasp the nettle here and actually trap every userland cache
    maintenance instruction once we detect at least one affected core in
    the system.
    We then emulate the instruction by executing it on behalf of userland,
    promoting "dc cvau" to "dc civac" on the way and injecting access
    fault back into userspace.
