PSL data cache should be flushed before resetting CAPI adapter
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
Status in linux source package in Yakkety:
The PSL data cache should be flushed before resetting a CAPI adapter.
If the PSL data cache holds dirty cache line when it is reset, the host
trying to access that memory when the link is down may face a Uncorrectable
Error (UE), forcing a reboot of the system.

---Additional Hardware Info---
CAPI adapter needed + AFU image using the PSL cache (e.g. afu_directed
Machine Type = Tuleta
---Steps to Reproduce---
There's some randomness to it, but triggering a memcpy test + card reset in
a loop can produce it:
memcpy_afu_ctx -p100 -l1000
echo 1 > /sys/class/cxl/card0/reset
Fix is already upstream under commit ID:
"cxl: Flush PSL cache before resetting the adapter"
We would like the fix released for both 16.04 and 16.10 please.
