This doesn't look to be correct.  The L1_CACHE_BYTES is compile time not
runtime, so it's the Architectural not the Actual width.  For us, there
are only two architectural widths governed by our compile classes, which
are PA1 and PA2 at 32 and 64.  There's no config way to produce a PA2
kernel which is PA88/89 only, so we should follow the PA2 architectural
width because the kernel can be booted on any PA2 system, not just
PA88/89.  Even if we could produce a PA88/89 only kernel and would wish
to, there's still not much point because 128 is the cache burst width.
PA988/89 work perfectly OK with the architectural width, so the extra
space is likely added for no benefit.
