[PATCH v11 0/4] riscv: Create and document PR_RISCV_SET_ICACHE_FLUSH_CTX prctl
Posted by Charlie Jenkins 1 week, 6 days ago
Improve the performance of icache flushing by creating a new prctl flag
PR_RISCV_SET_ICACHE_FLUSH_CTX. The interface is left generic to allow
for future expansions such as with the proposed J extension [1].

Documentation is also provided to explain the use case.

Patch sent to add PR_RISCV_SET_ICACHE_FLUSH_CTX to man-pages [2].
