libpayload: arm64: Keep instruction cache enabled at all times This patch makes libpayload enable the instruction cache as the very first thing, which is similar to how we treat it in coreboot. It also prevents the icache from being disabled again during mmu_disable() as part of the two-stage page table setup in post_sysinfo_scan_mmu_setup(). It replaces the existing mmu_disable() implementation with the assembly version from coreboot which handles certain edge cases better (see CB:27238 for details). The SCTLR flag definitions in libpayload seem to have still been copy&pasted from arm32, so replace with the actual arm64 defintions from coreboot.

coreboot is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) found in most computers. coreboot performs a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes additional boot logic, called a payload.
With the separation of hardware initialization and later boot logic, coreboot can scale from specialized applications that run directly firmware, run operating systems in flash, load custom bootloaders, or implement firmware standards, like PC BIOS services or UEFI. This allows for systems to only include the features necessary in the target application, reducing the amount of code and flash space required.
coreboot was formerly known as LinuxBIOS.
After the basic initialization of the hardware has been performed, any desired "payload" can be started by coreboot.
See https://www.coreboot.org/Payloads for a list of supported payloads.
coreboot supports a wide range of chipsets, devices, and mainboards.
For details please consult:
ANY_TOOLCHAINKconfig option if you're feeling lucky (no support in this case).
Please consult https://www.coreboot.org/Build_HOWTO for details.
If you want to test coreboot without any risks before you really decide to use it on your hardware, you can use the QEMU system emulator to run coreboot virtually in QEMU.
Please see https://www.coreboot.org/QEMU for details.
