Btw, you can use up your 70-ish chars per line for commit logs..

This looks a little odd to m and assumes we never pass a size smaller
than PAGE_SIZE. Whule that is probably true, why not something like:

if (size < PAGE_SIZE && size != -1)
local_flush_tlb_page(start);
else
local_flush_tlb_all();

?
