pseudo-locking not supported status even when compiling kernel 4.19 with CONFIG_INTEL_RDT



I have compiled 4.19 kernel with CONFIG_INTEL_RDT to test Intel`s cache locking feature. However, when I try to specify the mode as "pseudo-locksetup" to the mode file of a newly created directory , I get error and the following message in the last_cmd_status , "pseudo-locking not supported".

Kernel version : 4.19.7

root@localhost resctrl]# grep -r . /sys/fs/resctrl/info/*
/sys/fs/resctrl/info/last_cmd_status:pseudo-locking not supported

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-7980XE CPU

  The cpu flags are following :

Is it because I have cdp enabled ? In that case how can I turn L3 cdp off ?
