 mention the -debug package split
 In Debian systems, the special debug libraries (with extra assertions,
 checks and logging, not suitable for production) are placed in a separate
 binary package with the "-debug" suffix. These are only meant to be
 installed when specific troubleshooting is required. Instructions for this
 troubleshooting are included in the library manpages, and we add a note
 explaining that the respective -debug package should be installed.

 [patch] pmem2: arm64: fix data loss on armv8.2+ (improper flushing)

ARMv8.2 separates flush-for-coherency from flush-for-persistency as two
instructions: DC CVAC and DC CVAP.  It's the latter that is of interest
to us, and it is up to the processor to know where the Point of
Persistency happens to be.

The documentation is very clear, and this PIRL talk dispels all doubt:

On the other hand, I found no clear answer whether DC CVAC might be
enough on some pre-8.2 hardware.  There's no other option though (CVAC
is the heaviest flush available).  This question is probably moot as
pre-8.2 CPUs, while ubiquitous in dev boards, are gone in datacenter
gear.
