Yes it is, not just on s390 :/

And this is not something that's easy to write sanity checks for either
AFAIK. I mean we can do a few multi-threaded mmap()/mprotect()/munmap()
proglets and catch faults, but that doesn't even get close to covering
all the 'fun' spots.

Then again, you're more than welcome to the new:

MMU GATHER AND TLB INVALIDATION

section in MAINTAINERS.
