    I don't see how cache coherency can possibly work if the hardware
    behaves this way.

    In cache aliasing situations, yes I can understand a L1 cache visibility
    issue being present, but with kernel only stuff that should never happen
    otherwise we have a bug in the arch cache flushing support.
