Hmm, no, but I'm thinking you patch is broken, even for that case. We
must issue the TLBI before call_rcu().

Perhaps if we replace !tlb->end with something like:

!tlb->freed_tables && !tlb->cleared_p*

(which GCC should be able to do with a single load and mask)

I've not really thought too hard about it yet, I need to run some
errands, but I'll look at it more closely when I get back.
