Regarding the CPU, yes it is Marvell SoC 6281(Kirkwood).
I am questioning where do you propose using flush_icache_range?
Did you use it accompanied with the patch Eric posted?
Regarding dmesg, I am using serial console (ttyS0) and am not @ work, but I
figure that is all dmesg will have, if there is more I will send tomorrow.

If it is a Marvell chip, we eventually found that we had to add
flush_icache_range, although we were doing that in our SCSI_LLD.
