So whilst I was reviewing this, I realised that I think we should be
selecting HAVE_RCU_TABLE_INVALIDATE for arch/arm/ if HAVE_RCU_TABLE_FREE.

Whilst we don't distinguish between invalidation of intermediate and leaf
levels on 32-bit, the CPU is still permitted to cache partial translation
table walks even if the leaf entry indicates a fault. That means that
after tearing down the PTEs, we can still get walk cache allocations and
so if the RCU batching of the page tables fails, we need to invalidate
the TLB after clearing the intermediate entries but before freeing them.

Hmm, I don't think you've got the range correct here. Don't we want
something like:

__tlb_adjust_range(tlb, addr - PAGE_SIZE, 2 * PAGE_SIZE)

to ensure that we flush on both sides of the 1M boundary?
