Why not just fix the BIOS? Making flash regions write-cacheable is just 
wrong, surely?

It would possibly be useful to have some generic code in the physmap.c map 
driver which attempts to turn of caching for the region it's using - is 
there a portable way to call arch-specific routines to do that?
