Subject[PATCH 14/22] mm/hmm: Remove racy protection against double-unregistration
Date
From: Jason Gunthorpe <jgg@mellanox.com>

No other register/unregister kernel API attempts to provide this kind of
protection as it is inherently racy, so just drop it.

Callers should provide their own protection, and it appears nouveau
already does.
