Looking in the SDM, Vol. 3A "8.9.1 Hierarchical Mapping of Shared
Resources", there are a _couple_ of new levels: Die, Tile and Module.
But, this patch only covers Dies.

Was there a reason for that?

I wonder if we'll end up with different (better) infrastructure if we do
these all at once instead of hacking them in one at a time.
