Fixed in v4

Because tzc_dump_config() uses log_info(), only prints when the 
appropriate log level is enabled. This is by design, so that we don't 
need extra logic here to invoke dump().

I don't know if this can be safely generalized. stm32mp is the only 
platform to enable TZC in SPL, which brings special constraints:

We're running in secure mode, and we've touched memory that will be 
reserved to the normal world, for example the linux devicetree. Once we 
enable TZC, we can't touch that memory anymore. This could happen later 
as the CPU is evicting cache lines.

To make sure we don't hit a TZC violation as cache lines are evicted, we 
both flush the dcache, and disable the dcache. Doing this another way is 
not tested, and I can't guarantee that other variations will work reliably.
