Symptoms

When a data cache maintenance operation stops followed by an ISB without a DSB on a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device, the processor may deadlock.

This hotfix involves putting DSB before ISB in case that a data cache maintenance operation stops.

Note This issue typically occurs on an ARM-based platform.
