The BDI doesn't fix anything.  I was just expecting the 'invalidate
protect' to actually do that. :-)  I set up several TLB1 entries during
the BDI initialization prior to debugging the boot rom.  The boot rom
then does a flash invalidate and loads up a "new" set of TLB1 entries.
I was expecting the values I set with the BDI to co-exist with the
new ones, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
