How do I enable the L2 cache?
Written on by - 23494 views so far.

Either: In UBoot, set the environment variable bootargs to include the phrase:



Zero, x, eight, seven zeroes.

Or: In Linux, the kernel L2 driver can be controlled via the interface /proc/sys/kernel/l2cr.

Just read the ascii string from the interface using cat /proc/sys/kernel/l2cr.

If you want to change it, just overwrite the hex value with a new one with:


 echo 'hexcode' > /proc/sys/kernel/l2cr. 


Enable with hex code 0x80000000, disable with 0x00000000.

OS4 will probably enable this by default.
