Subject[RFC PATCH 4/7] x86/intel_rdt: Support restore of all pseudo-locked regions
Date
An instruction like wbinvd would evict all data from pseudo-locked
regions within the cache hierarchy on which the instruction was run.

Add support for offloading the restoration of all pseudo-locked
regions since it is not possible to know which pseudo-locked regions
specifically are in need of restoration. The restoration could be
triggered from anywhere at which time the work to do so is scheduled
on the system wide workqueue. Since this is a severe event that could
be handled automatically (not triggered by user space) a warning is
printed to user when the restoration runs.
