AFAIK no. All callers of invalidate_range_start/end pairs do so a few
lines apart and don't change their locking in between - thus since
start can block so can end.

Would love to know if that is not true??

Similarly I've also been idly wondering if we should add a
'might_sleep()' to invalidate_rangestart/end() to make this constraint
clear & tested to the mm side?
