OK, that was not clear to me. Especially srcu_read_lock in
__mmu_notifier_invalidate_range suggests the callback might sleep. There
is no note about the pte lock. There is even a note about possible
blocking
* If this callback cannot block, and invalidate_range_{start,end}
* cannot block, mmu_notifier_ops.flags should have
* MMU_INVALIDATE_DOES_NOT_BLOCK set.

I am removing that part of the comment but it really confused me.
