// Move data into the cache before it is read, or "prefetch" it.
// The value of `addr` is the address of the memory to prefetch. If
// the target and compiler support it, data prefetch instructions are
// generated. If the prefetch is done some time before the memory is
// read, it may be in the cache by the time the read occurs.
// The function names specify the temporal locality heuristic applied,
// using the names of Intel prefetch instructions:
// T0 - high degree of temporal locality; data should be left in as
// many levels of the cache possible
// T1 - moderate degree of temporal locality
// T2 - low degree of temporal locality
// Nta - no temporal locality, data need not be left in the cache
// after the read
// Incorrect or gratuitous use of these functions can degrade
// performance, so use them only when representative benchmarks show
// an improvement.
