Thanks for the pointer.  I just took a look, and it appears that while
automatic adjustment for cache sizes is only coded for i386 and amd64,
that command line arguments to the daemon can be used to identify the
cache sizes manually.  Since I've not yet tried using it, I can't speak
to how well that actually works on any particular target.
