Nothing in Cactus uses these variables, and in some cases they are best guesses only. Also, as of 2fb3e32532bbe70121559d582d96b3c300c95276 (Erik Schnetter, Thu Jan 15 12:57:04 2015 -0500), Cactus (the flesh) lost it's ability to overwrite these variables via parameters. Thus, this is a little clean-up within the flesh.

    Fine to apply, please also remove CACHELINE_BYTES related code from simfactory (seems to be in lib/sim-build.py when grep'ing for CACHELINE_BYTES). Consider creating a ticket to remove the corresponding option from simfactory and instead realy on hwloc (or similar) library to query this information at runtime.
