This is true.

Nico can commnent further, but I think the main concern here was that
this code shouldn't be factored prematurely.

There are many low-level platform specifics involved here, so it's
hard to be certain that all platforms could fit into a more abstracted
framework until we have some evidence to look at.

This could be revisited when we have a few diverse MCPM ports to
compare.


The low-level A15/A7 cacheflush sequence is already being factored
by Nico [1].
