EVALUATION

The generated flush code is not ready after it generated and called to flush itself first --- a chicken/egg conflict on IA64 montecito. This platform is known with icache flush problem and with bigger cache size the possibility is bigger. See more details on comments. We have to use the static version flush code to do the job.
