Yes very much so. Let me invert that option, you normally want that,
except if you don't natively use the linux page-tables.

Subject: asm-generic/tlb: Invert HAVE_RCU_TABLE_INVALIDATE
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>
Date: Wed Sep 19 13:24:41 CEST 2018

Make issuing a TLB invalidate for page-table pages the normal case.

The reason is twofold:

- too many invalidates is safer than too few,
- most architectures use the linux page-tables natively
and would this require this.

Make it an opt-out, instead of an opt-in.
