The 405 has a 32-byte cache line, yes.  I think the 401 and 403 have
16-byte cache lines.  Note that NetBSD-current has support for the
405GP (the 405L will hopefully be supported soon; I just need to have
a spare week to throw at it).  NetBSD is currently being ported to
some other IBM chips based on the 401 core, I believe.
