you have'nt missed a check here. it does indeed get called
l2c310_enable->l2c_enable -> (if cache
disabled)->l2c_configure->l2c310_configure

It looks like a quirk of AM437x which remained hidden till this patch
exposed it. The original pl310 resume would have been invoked if
outer_resume was invoked (if my reading of code is correct), which in
the case of AM437x was never invoked during boot. By reusing the
restore code for resume (which in my opinion is a good change), we
seemed to have exposed quirky behavior on am437x. I started a thread
yesterday with hardware folks trying to understand the integration
aspects and explanation for this quirky behavior - unfortunately, with
holidays, I doubt I might get a quick answer fast. but the workaround
seems obvious - do not write to the the mentioned 4 registers on
am437x. This might make sense it arm,tag-latency , arm,data-latency,
arm,filter-ranges properties are not defined in OF.

The split is not complete or properly done as I ignored aurora and was
trying to do it focussed on pl310 impacted code in a hurry, but yes,
the split is indeed bisectable for OMAP platforms. The intent was to
indicate the direction we should probably take and introduce the
refactor in stages. At the very least, it tends to be easier to debug
down to.
