Sure. Will update it.

cmask NULL is pretty common case and we would be unnecessarily
executing bunch of instructions everytime while not saving much. Kernel
still have to make an SBI call and OpenSBI is doing a local flush
anyways.

Looking at the code again, I think we can just use cpumask_weight and
do local tlb flush only if local cpu is the only cpu present.

Otherwise, it will just fall through and call sbi_remote_sfence_vma().

....
....
+
+ cpuid = get_cpu();
+ if (!cmask) {
+ riscv_cpuid_to_hartid_mask(cpu_online_mask, &hmask);
+ goto issue_sfence;
+ }
+
+
+ if (cpumask_test_cpu(cpuid, cmask) && cpumask_weight(cmask) ==
1) {
+ /* Save trap cost by issuing a local tlb flush here */
+ if ((start == 0 && size == -1) || (size > PAGE_SIZE))
+ local_flush_tlb_all();
+ else if (size == PAGE_SIZE)
+ local_flush_tlb_page(start);
+ goto done;
+ }
+
riscv_cpuid_to_hartid_mask(cmask, &hmask);
+
+issue_sfence:
sbi_remote_sfence_vma(hmask.bits, start, size);
+done:
+ put_cpu();
}

This is much simpler than what I had done in v2. I will address the if
condition around size as well.
