mem: Do not treat CleanEvict as a write operation
Review Request #3171 - Created Oct. 30, 2015 and submitted
Changeset 11186:7e65c276ca2d --------------------------- mem: Do not treat CleanEvict as a write operation This patch changes the CleanEvict command type to not be considered a write. Initially it was made a zero-sized write to match the writeback command, but as things developed it became clear that it causes more problems than it solves. For example, the memory modules (and bridge) should not consider the CleanEvict as a write, but instead discard it. With this patch it will be neither a read, nor write, and as it does not need a response the slave will simply sink it.

Nilay, this one is for you. It took a few iterations, but we finally converged on going with your suggestion.
