No, the reason PPC needs WB (technically any cacheable mapping) is that
the QBMan block on those parts will raise an error IRQ if it sees any
transaction less than cacheline size. We know that this cannot happen
on PPC parts with QBMan when there is a cacheable mapping because we
also developed the interconnect for everything that has a QBMan block.

We dropped the check for L1_CACHE_BYTES due to the value being set to
128 on ARM64 even on parts that has smaller caches. I don't think there
is much to worry about here as cacheline size isn't something SW
controls in any case. If we produce a part with QBMan that has a larger
cache granularity we will need to address that in other parts of the
code as well. The check was in the code for PPC as a sanity check but
since the value isn't (in my opinion) meaningful on ARM we can remove it
to avoid problems.
