But VHPT is only hint.
I propose a two levels TC hierarchy:
First level describes VHPT: 1 way, 64 sets. I am not sure about 64 sets, but
again it is difficult to get the right value.
Second level descrives dtlb/itlb: 1 way, 1 set.
If you don't agree, please suggest values. I will be happy to use them :-)

This is the smallest value allowed by SDM.
Which number do you prefer ?

I agree. I have somewhat picked a few values.
But it is difficult to tell the truth and lying :-)
