Since Linux 2.6.34 Linux uses the flush_kernel_vmap_range/
invalidate_kernel_vmap_range APIs to make I/O to vmapped
areas work on systems with virtually indexed caches.
Unfortunately only arm, parisc and sh actually implement these so far.
You'll need to implement an implementation of these APIs for your cache
architecture to make XFS work on MIPS with virtually indexed caches.
