Should we not instead just

#define SMP_CACHE_BYTES L1_CACHE_BYTES

like a handful of architectures do?

The cache size is sort of fake here, as we don't have any non-coherent
mechanisms, but IIRC we wrote somewhere that it's recommended to have 64-byte
cache lines in RISC-V implementations as software may assume that for
performance reasons.  Not really a strong reason, but I'd prefer to just make
these match.
