ARMv5 and older invalidates the L1 Dcache.
ARMv6 cleans and invalidates the L1 Dcache.
ARMv7 does nothing with the L1 Dcache.

That's rather inconsistent, but that's what people are doing with their
current suspend/resume paths.  We really ought to have this well-defined.

I don't see any reason why there should be any dirty data in the Dcache,
so I think the safe thing we should be doing in every case is a L1 Dcache
invalidate on resume.

That's a separate change though.
