Sorry, I didn't comment because I don't have much experience
with virtually indexed caches, and while the fix seems to
make sense, I was hoping to learn more from the discussion
to follow.

I do think that it would be helpful to spell out "virtually
indexed" in the comment. "VI" might not be enough to jog
the memory of folks who haven't used such an architecture
