What I have done is copy the code snippet from the ld sources:

#define FLUSH_DCACHE(beg, end)                                  \
        __asm__ __volatile__(                                   \
                "movem%.l %/d0-%/d7/%/a0-%/a5,%-\n\t"           \
                "move%.l %0,%/a1\n\t"                           \
                "move%.l %1,%/d1\n\t"                           \
                "sub%.l %/d1,%/a1\n\t"                          \
                "movel  %#0x80000004,d0\n\t"                    \
                "trap   %#12\n\t"                               \
                "movem%.l %+,%/d0-%/d7/%/a0-%/a5"               \
                :                                               \
                : "g" (beg), "g" (end) )

With this, Kaffe 0.8.4 successfully builds and runs the included test suite
and the benchmarks (apart from AWT bugs). So I'd assume that trap 12 does

But it's not an "official" interface, exported by, say, a header?

What I have here is

[root at q700] ~ # cc -v
gcc version
[root at q700] ~ #

i.e. stock 1.3 userland and a 1.3B kernel.
