Hi,

I must be misunderstanding something.

AFAIK, The code in cache_setup_of_node() won't call cache_of_set_props()
because it returns when there is an existing of_node (fw_unique) created
by the riscv populate_cache_leaves(). That's why I'm making the direct
call here. If we fail to get that change in place before
cache_override_properties() is removed then the fields not set by the
riscv code (size/etc) will be missing.
