 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  scw
 Date:          Sat Nov 28 11:44:45 UTC 2009
 Modified Files:
        src/sys/arch/arm/arm32: pmap.c
 Log Message:
 Apply some band-aid to pmap_activate() for PR kern/41058:
 There's a corner case here which can leave turds in the cache as
 reported in kern/41058. They're probably left over during tear-down and
 switching away from an exiting process. Until the root cause is identified
 and fixed, zap the cache when switching pmaps. This will result in a few
 unnecessary cache flushes, but that's better than silently corrupting data.
 Also remove an extraneous return statement in pmap_page_protect() which
 crept in during the matt-armv6 merge.
