So indeed we should be fine. I confirmed with Nick that kernel space
invalidations are already global today.
Nick mentioned that we should still be fine tomorrow, but in the distant
future, we could imagine local usage of some part of the kernel space.
It will require some work, but it would be best to add a comment in one
of the kernel invalidation function (for example
radix__flush_tlb_kernel_range()) that if a kernel invalidation ever
becomes local, then clients of the nest MMU may need some work.

A few more comments below.

Same as above, we should add a comment here in the driver code that a
kernel context is ok because invalidations are global.


We also need a new check in xsl_fault_handler(). A valid kernel address
shouldn't fault, but it's still possible for the FPGA to try accessing a
bogus kernel address. In which case, xsl_fault_handler() would be
entered, with a valid fault context. We'll find pe_data in the tree
based on the valid pe_handle, but pe_data->mm will be NULL. In that, we
can return early, acknowledging the interrupt with ADDRESS_ERROR value
(like we do if pe_data is not found in the tree).
