	wtf knows about TLB (TLB: translation lookaside buffer) but fails to
	mention that it is an IBM-ism.
	wtf does not know the proper meaning of ATC (address translation cache)
	which is the corresponding Motorola-speak. See, for instance, the
	MC68040 Microprocessor User's Manual from Motorola.
	wtf atc
