[PATCH 14/16] ARM: TC2: ensure powerdown-time data is flushed from cache

From: Dave Martin <dave.martin at linaro.org>

Non-local variables used by the CCI management function called after
disabling the cache must be flushed out to main memory in advance,
otherwise incoherency of those values may occur if they are sitting
in the cache of some other CPU when cci_disable() executes.

This patch adds the appropriate flushing to the CCI driver to ensure
that the relevant data is available in RAM ahead of time.

Because this creates a dependency on arch-specific cacheflushing
functions, this patch also makes ARM_CCI depend on ARM.
