> Bus arbitration tweak for copy-back DDRAM 121008

Another consideration: It is possible to swap PC and PS priorities permanently
for RAM startup. Then cache control macros will be shorter and there's no risk
of preemption.. The drawback, if any, is that crossbar arbitration priorities
for DDRAM will be different than the reset default. If implemented, this
inversion could be fixed or configurable with CDL.
