Yes, that helps (unless the parser for that command-line does not
accept hex values).
Yep, the command-line parser does accept hex values. I ended up just trying
to make the text clearer, though.
It would also help to make the text be:
"CPU Cache and Memory Controller Flush"
My descriptions for the bits are coming straight out of ACPI. :) I'd prefer
to stay consistent with what's written in the spec.
