Subject[PATCH] ACPI/PPTT: Handle architecturally unknown cache types
Date
The type of a cache might not be specified by architectural mechanisms (ie
system registers), but its type might be specified in the PPTT. In this
case, following the PPTT specification, we should identify the cache as
the type specified by PPTT.

This fixes the following lscpu issue where only the cache type sysfs file
is missing which results in no output providing a poor user experience in
the above system configuration-
lscpu: cannot open /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/type: No such
file or directory

Fixes: 2bd00bcd73e5 (ACPI/PPTT: Add Processor Properties Topology Table parsing)
