Subject[PATCH V2 10/10] x86/resctrl: Only pseudo-lock L3 cache when inclusive
Date
Cache pseudo-locking is a model specific feature and platforms
supporting this feature are added by adding the x86 model data to the
source code after cache pseudo-locking has been validated for the
particular platform.

Indicating support for cache pseudo-locking for an entire platform is
sufficient when the cache characteristics of the platform is the same
for all instances of the platform. If this is not the case then an
additional check needs to be added. In particular, it is currently only
possible to pseudo-lock an L3 cache region if the L3 cache is inclusive
of lower level caches. If the L3 cache is not inclusive then any
pseudo-locked data would be evicted from the pseudo-locked region when
it is moved to the L2 cache.

When some SKUs of a platform may have inclusive cache while other SKUs
may have non inclusive cache it is necessary to, in addition of checking
if the platform supports cache pseudo-locking, also check if the cache
being pseudo-locked is inclusive.
