Hi Alex,

Thanks for running these tests and providing the in-depth analysis.

My problem with that is it's not really much different to just skipping the
page table update entirely. Skipping the DSB is closer to what is done on
x86, where we bound the stale entry time to the next context-switch.

Given that I already queued the version without the DSB, we have the choice
to either continue with that or to revert it and go back to the previous
behaviour. Which would you prefer?
