I actually omitted that on purpose because I didn't want to go into too
many details and I hadn't realized that it's now possible to configure
refcount_bits. I will correct the document.

I wonder what happens then to this DEFAULT_L2_REFCOUNT_SIZE_RATIO of 4,
because that's only valid if refcount_bits == 16.

Is the user supposed to calculate that ratio manually and configure both
cache sizes?

Sure, I can change that too.
