It wasn't forgotten, there is a call to M68000_Flush_Data_Cache, which in turn 
calls flush_cpu_caches(). However, the latter looks rather dubious to me:

- for 030, it will only do the flush if cpu_compatible || 
cpu_memory_cycle_exact, ignoring the force argument that was passed to the 

- also for 030, it uses regs.caar to determine the address to invalidate. 
However, caar is not set to the DTA address in this scenario (same is true 
when it is called from other functions, like GEMDOS_Read())

- For 020/030, it also does some additional checks of the cacr register, but 
not for 040, so it looks like this function can only be used after writing to 
cacr, but not in the scenario used here.
