arm linux support flush icache by syscall "cacheflush",

qemu have this function:
static inline void flush_icache_range(unsigned long start, unsigned long 
    register unsigned long _beg __asm ("a1") = start;
    register unsigned long _end __asm ("a2") = stop;
    register unsigned long _flg __asm ("a3") = 0;
    __asm __volatile__ ("swi 0x9f0002" : : "r" (_beg), "r" (_end), "r" 

you can reference kernel source arch/arm/kernel/traps.c and
