I like the idea of this patch, but it needs further work...

Comments inline.

This patch needs to be reformatted in the GNU style (indentation of
braces, braces and else clauses on separate lines etc).

You need to sort out the comment.  What's missing here?

Basing bus width on the architecture is a bit too simplistic.  Instead
this should be a parameter that comes from the CPU cost tables, based on
the current tune target.

Use CEIL (from system.h)
