There's no current way in English of construing "as firmware takes care
of flushing cache" to mean its inverse, so the changelog needs updating
to explain that firmware does *not* take care of cache flushing, so
effectively nothing does and we'll need a cc to stable if the problem
is that nothing takes care of flushing the drive caches.
