ARM: 6201/1: RealView: Do not use outer_sync() on ARM11MPCore boards with L220
RealView boards with certain revisions of the L220 cache controller (ARM11* processors only) may have issues (hardware deadlock) with the recent changes to the mb() barrier implementation (DSB followed by an L2 cache sync). The patch redefines the RealView ARM11MPCore mandatory barriers without the outer_sync() call.
