I don't see the reasons for this. Could you explain further? 

[The multiprocessor systems I know best are Sun SPARC systems. If you
frame the explanation in terms of SPARC TSO memory model I don't need
any references to background material on how the caches operate. If you
frame it in terms of some other system's memory model a reference to a
description of the memory model would help.]
