from an API perspective, D-Cache and I-Cache are identical: no change.
however, internally... yeah.  i have just identified/noticed for example that
the original, in VHDL, assumes that the tools (Xilinx) will correctly identify
SRAMs as SRAMs simply by marking an array as "distributed".

clearly that is flat-out not happening in yosys / nmigen, therefore those
will have to *explicitly* be given an SRAM.  actually, a pair of SRAMs:
one 128-bit wide, the other 92-bit wide (4x 23-bits for the page-table entries)
