Found the reason why dcbz never completes.

                with m.Case(MicrOp.OP_DCBZ):
                    # activate dcbz mode (spec: v3.0B p850)
                    comb += valid.eq(1)   # start "pulse"
                    comb += d_in.valid.eq(blip)     # start
                    comb += d_in.dcbz.eq(1)         # dcbz mode
                    comb += d_in.addr.eq(a_i + b_i) # addr is (RA|0) + RB
                    comb += done.eq(l_out.done)     # THIS IS WRONG

Once this is fixed, I propose to connect the PortInterface to the MMU and DCache.
Then some simulated memory could be added.
