I.e. implement ECC in software. Would be extremely slow though.

My understanding is that cflush is not strictly necessary, it only makes
the issue more likely to trigger.

If you modify the pattern so that it neraly fits into cacheline (but not
really), you would be able to produce similar (if not the same) cache
eviction pattern as if without explicit cflush. Right?
