[riscv-CMOs:master] New Comment on Issue #40 encoding of prefetches impose minimum sensible granularity of cache blocks
By jnk0le:

Since those are HINTs, I think that offset[4:0] should be removed from their documentation. (can be substituted with something like rd=x0)

By aswaterman:

IMO, the current formulation is preferable. If we were to change, we'd have to add a sentence to the normative text that "offset[4:0] is 0". As it stands, the instruction encoding diagram states this fact quite concisely.
