    Hmmm, on the MPC7450 family there are events for cache-hits and
    cache-misses, so there it would be nice to be able to ask for
    cache-refs and have it compute cache-hits plus cache-misses.

    Sounds nice. If we do this we should ensure that the two events
    get put into one group if possible.
