Are there any reasons why you cannot quote an internal note about this
errata which would give a better idea of what this code is about?
Sorry but the diff really does not help understand what is happening
without a proper explanation of why this is required. At first glance
it would like some revisions of the CPU are affected by some D$ bug?

Okaaay. How about we just stop here. I posted a poor quality patch that did not have enough information. I will post a second version that will have the details of what E16 is and what is being fixed. This will involve me talking to hardware engineers to get something I can put in the patch. My sincere apologies to everyone. I will go crawl back under my rock and finish my work for this week. You should see the corrected version the first part of next week. Cheers.

Steve
