That's possibly problematic because the flat cache will of necessity end
up with defaults (of 0 from the kzalloc()) for all the registers.
You'll still have default values in the cache, though some of the
behaviour around optimising syncs does change without them explicitly
given. It does deal with the allocation issue but given that the issue
was incorrect defaults I'd be a bit concerned.
