Because in include/acpi/actbl1.h:

#define ACPI_HMAT_CA_NONE (0)

ACPI_HMAT_CA_NONE is 0, but in include/linux/node.h:

enum cache_indexing {
NODE_CACHE_DIRECT_MAP,
NODE_CACHE_INDEXED,
NODE_CACHE_OTHER,
};
NODE_CACHE_OTHER is 2, and for otner enum:

case ACPI_HMAT_CA_DIRECT_MAPPED:
tcache->cache_attrs.indexing = NODE_CACHE_DIRECT_MAP;
break;
case ACPI_HMAT_CA_COMPLEX_CACHE_INDEXING:
tcache->cache_attrs.indexing = NODE_CACHE_INDEXED;
break;
in include/acpi/actbl1.h:

#define ACPI_HMAT_CA_DIRECT_MAPPED (1)
#define ACPI_HMAT_CA_COMPLEX_CACHE_INDEXING (2)

but in include/linux/node.h:

NODE_CACHE_DIRECT_MAP is 0, NODE_CACHE_INDEXED is 1. This is incorrect.
And same for enum cache_write_policy.
