The only reason steps are ever used is for AC'97 devices which don't use
the generic cache code as they're pretty much obsolete so the framework
support is mostly just carried around as legacy.  The step size is used
in the cache display code which does use it.  If someone was interested
enough to convert AC'97 over that'd be nice.
