AFAICT this should work.

Subject: asm-generic/tlb: Avoid potential double flush

Aneesh reported that:

tlb_flush_mmu()
tlb_flush_mmu_tlbonly()
tlb_flush() <-- #1
tlb_flush_mmu_free()
tlb_table_flush()
tlb_table_invalidate()
tlb_flush_mmu_tlbonly()
tlb_flush() <-- #2

does two TLBIs when tlb->fullmm, because __tlb_reset_range() will not
clear tlb->end in that case.

Observe that any caller to __tlb_adjust_range() also sets at least one
of the tlb->freed_tables || tlb->cleared_p* bits, and those are
unconditionally cleared by __tlb_reset_range().

Change the condition for actually issuing TLBI to having one of those
bits set, as opposed to having tlb->end != 0.
