--- Comment #5 from Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton <lkcl at lkcl.net> ---
one important set of API conventions:

* L0CacheBuffer's operating conventions are that the address must be
  *EXTERNALLY* sustained and held, as must its associated addr_ok

* this is because otherwise L0CacheBuffer itself has to have an
  address latch

* strictly speaking, LDSTCompUnit does not need an actual latch
  for the address *at all*.

* the reason is because, as you can see from the diagram

  all of the information necessary to "fire" the adder and make
  the address "valid" is *already latched* and will *remain*
  latched until the busy signal is released.

  - op2 is latched
  - the immediate is latched
