I think I mostly agree, except for reverting 6060e8df5178, which I don't
think would be correct. That reintroduces the possibility of flushing
the I-cache twice in that path, once for aliasing vipt dcaches, and again
for asid tagged vivt icaches. I'd rather have the code structured so we
only do this once.
