That's exactly what rumpcomp_sync_icache() hypercall does. I need this
definition to compile cache.c stub.

To draw an analogy, my hack is similar to this hack, except that I
define one baseline cpu while they define all cpus:

#ifdef _KERNEL
#if defined(_MODULAR) || defined(_LKM) || defined(_STANDALONE)
/* Assume all CPU architectures are valid for LKM's and standlone progs */
#define MIPS1           1
#define MIPS3           1
#define MIPS4           1
#define MIPS32          1
#define MIPS32R2        1
#define MIPS64          1
#define MIPS64R2        1
