It may be a better guess but even that is not always relevant since
CCSIDR may not present the real hardware information. It's only meant to
give enough information to be able to do cache maintenance by set/way
and we've seen CPU implementations where this has nothing to do with the
actual cache geometry.

So I don't think we can do anything more than just hard-coding and hope
that implementations where CWG is 0 (or higher than 128) are only
deployed in a fully coherent configuration.
