commit 159793001d7d85af17855630c94f0a176848e16b upstream.

In order for a guest with caches disabled to observe data written
contained in a given page, we need to make sure that page is
committed to memory, and not just hanging in the cache (as guest
accesses are completely bypassing the cache until it decides to
enable it).

For this purpose, hook into the coherent_cache_guest_page
function and flush the region if the guest SCTLR
register doesn't show the MMU and caches as being enabled.
