Please do not fiddle about under the covers, there be dragons there.
It looks to me like you're trying to use __cpuc_flush_dcache_area()
on an area that's been ioremap()'d, which is a waste of CPU cycles.
ioremap()'d areas are mapped as "device" memory type, which means
the region isn't even cached. So I don't think this is necessary.
