I cant see why they need to be in there. I always wondered if we would
be able to handle a change in cacheline size, if the *CacheL1* stuff
doesnt cover it all then we may as well use #defines instead.

I _think_ only the first 4 fields in the NACA are architected by the
OS/400 hypervisor, and none of them by phyp.
