cacheflush


SYNOPSIS
       #include <asm/cachectl.h>

       int cacheflush(char *addr, int nbytes, int cache);

DESCRIPTION
       cacheflush()  flushes  the  contents  of the indicated cache(s) for the
       user addresses in the range addr to (addr+nbytes-1).  cache may be  one
       of:

       ICACHE Flush the instruction cache.

       DCACHE Write  back  to  memory  and invalidate the affected valid cache
              lines.

       BCACHE Same as (ICACHE|DCACHE).

RETURN VALUE
       cacheflush() returns 0 on success  or  -1  on  error.   If  errors  are
       detected, errno will indicate the error.

ERRORS
       EFAULT Some  or all of the address range addr to (addr+nbytes-1) is not
              accessible.

       EINVAL cache is not one of ICACHE, DCACHE, or BCACHE.

CONFORMING TO
       This Linux-specific system call is only available  on  MIPS-based  sys-
       tems.  It should not be used in programs intended to be portable.

BUGS
       The  current  implementation  ignores  the  addr  and nbytes arguments.
       Therefore, the whole cache is always flushed.
