[riscv-CMOs:master] New Comment on Issue #48 How to discover the information of cache block size by software?
By gfavor:

The new (in development) "RISC-V unified low-level discovery method" will support discovery of lots of information - such as what arch extensions are supported, what optional extension features are supported, what parameters are supported, etc. In Linux-class systems, for example, this would be employed during boot by M-mode software, and some of that information may then be populated into Device Tree or ACPI tables that are passed to the OS.

Cache config info readily falls into this category.
