6.2.2. Instruction cache disabled behavior

The SCTLR.I bit, see System Control Register, enables or disables the L1 instruction cache. If the I bit is disabled, fetches cannot access any of the instruction cache arrays. An exception to this rule is the CP15 instruction cache operations. If the instruction cache is disabled, the instruction cache maintenance operations can still execute normally.
