On my 7455 rev 3.3 at least. cpufreq on mine uses the PMU as well, thus
approx. the same code path as sleep. By doing freq. switches in a loop
from a shell script, I can make it crash in a few iterations. It seem to
be solid if I add an ugly displacement flush before the cache flush
code, but that should not be necessary and thus makes me think something
is wrong with the code.
