SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/6] cacheinfo: Set cache 'id' based on DT data

I believe another expected use of the cache ID exposed in sysfs is to
program steering tags for cache stashing (typically in VFIO-based
userspace drivers like DPDK so we can't realistically mediate it any
other way). There were plans afoot last year to ensure that ACPI PPTT
could provide the necessary ID values for arm64 systems which will
typically be fairly arbitrary (but unique) due to reflecting underlying
interconnect routing IDs. Assuming that there will eventually be some
interest in cache stashing on DT-based systems too, we probably want to
allow for an explicit ID property on DT cache nodes in a similar manner.

That said, I think it does make sense to have some kind of
auto-generated fallback scheme *as well*, since I'm sure there will be
plenty systems which care about MPAM but don't support stashing, and
therefore wouldn't have a meaningful set of IDs to populate their DT
with. Conversely I think that might also matter for ACPI too - one point
I remember from previous discussions is that PPTT may use a compact
representation where a single entry represents all equivalent caches at
that level, so I'm not sure we can necessarily rely on IDs out of that
path being unique either.
