This information is horribly scattered over lots of resources.  A well
written and fun to read book is "See MIPS Run" by Dominik Sweetman; see
also the literature section of www.linux-mips.com.  The Hennesey &
Patterson books looks at caches from a more theoretical perspective but
provides the necessary background.
