ARM: 7573/1: idmap: use flush_cache_louis() and flush TLBs only when necessary

Flushing the cache is needed for the hardware to see the idmap table
and therefore can be done at init time.  On ARMv7 it is not necessary to
flush L2 so flush_cache_louis() is used here instead.

There is no point flushing the cache in setup_mm_for_reboot() as the
caller should, and already is, taking care of this.  If switching the
memory map requires a cache flush, then cpu_switch_mm() already includes
that operation.

What is not done by cpu_switch_mm() on ASID capable CPUs is TLB flushing
as the whole point of the ASID is to tag the TLBs and avoid flushing them
on a context switch.  Since we don't have a clean ASID for the identity
mapping, we need to flush the TLB explicitly in that case.  Otherwise
this is already performed by cpu_switch_mm().
