The PAL spec has changed so that PAL_CALL is correct and PAL_CALL_IC_OFF
is incorrect.  So this is a bug in Linux/ia64, though currently
harmless since ia64_pal_cache_flush is unused.

I think Kevin was going to submit a patch to the linux-ia64 list
so that others don't run into this problem in the future.
