ARM_SYNC_ICACHE(2) System Calls Manual (arm) ARM_SYNC_ICACHE(2) NAME arm_sync_icache - clean the CPU data cache and flush the CPU instruction cache LIBRARY ARM Architecture Library (libarm, -larm) SYNOPSIS #include <machine/sysarch.h> int arm_sync_icache(uintptr_t addr, size_t len); DESCRIPTION arm_sync_icache() will make sure that all the entries in the processor instruction cache are synchronized with main memory and that any data in a write back cache has been cleaned. Some ARM processors (e.g. SA110) have separate instruction and data caches thus any dynamically generated or modified code needs to be written back from any data caches to main memory and the instruction cache needs to be synchronized with main memory. On such processors arm_sync_icache() will clean the data cache and invalidate the processor instruction cache to force reloading from main memory. On processors that have a shared instruction and data cache and have a write through cache (e.g. ARM6) no action needs to be taken. The routine takes a start address addr and a length len to describe the area of memory that needs to be cleaned and synchronized. ERRORS arm_sync_icache() will never fail so will always return 0.
