It is perfectly true that these options are used only during CPU
validations and not in the end product. Still, it doesn't justify why
these options are not to be used with decompressor. Or alternately, why
would a user intend to disable a cache when it has been implemented
correctly and is stable? Without this change, the effect of disabling
cache is not reflected in entirety.
