To be honest, I don't remember precisely. I will need to setup a board
and see exactly. But from what I remember:
- according to this[1] in chapter 3.8.6, table 71. It says that the full
entry of IS2 is 384. And this 384 represent a full entry. In this row,
can be also sub entries like: half entry and quater entries. And each
entry has 2 bits that describes the entry type. So if you have 2 bits
for each possible entry then you have 8 bits describing each type. One
observation is even if you have a full entry each pair of 2 bits
describing the type needs to be set that is a full entry. Maybe if you
have a look at Figure 30, it would be a little bit more clear. Even
there is a register called VCAP_TG_DAT that information is storred
internally in the VCAP_ENTRY_DAT.
- so having those in mind, then VCAP_IS2_ENTRY_WIDTH is the full entry
length - 8 bits. 384 - 8 = 376.
- then if I remember correctly then VCAP_CONST_ENTRY_WIDTH should be
384? or 12 if it is counting the words.

Does it make sense or am I completly off?
