Sorry I paste the wrong pre-define.

This is the incorrect line:

case ACPI_HMAT_CA_DIRECT_MAPPED:
tcache->cache_attrs.indexing = NODE_CACHE_DIRECT_MAP;

ACPI_HMAT_CA_DIRECT_MAPPED is 1, NODE_CACHE_DIRECT_MAP is 0. That means
if HMAT table input 1 for cache_attrs.indexing, kernel store 0 in
cache_attrs.indexing. But in ACPI 6.3, 0 means "None". So for the whole
switch codes:

switch ((attrs & ACPI_HMAT_CACHE_ASSOCIATIVITY) >> 8) {
case ACPI_HMAT_CA_DIRECT_MAPPED(1):
tcache->cache_attrs.indexing = NODE_CACHE_DIRECT_MAP(0);
break;
case ACPI_HMAT_CA_COMPLEX_CACHE_INDEXING(2):
tcache->cache_attrs.indexing = NODE_CACHE_INDEXED(1);
break;
case ACPI_HMAT_CA_NONE(0):
default:
tcache->cache_attrs.indexing = NODE_CACHE_OTHER(2);
break;
}
