Subject[PATCH 1/2] ARCv2: LIB: memeset: fix doing prefetchw outside of buffer
Date
Current ARCv2 memeset implementation may call 'prefetchw'
instruction for address which lies outside of memset area.
So we got one modified (dirty) cache line outside of memset
area. This may lead to data corruption if this area is used
for DMA IO.

Another issue is that current ARCv2 memeset implementation
may call 'prealloc' instruction for L1 cache line which
doesn't fully belongs to memeset area in case of 128B L1 D$
line length. That leads to data corruption.

Fix prefetchw/prealloc instructions using in case of 64B L1 data
cache line (default case) and don't use prefetch* instructions
for other possible L1 data cache line lengths (32B and 128B).
