Yeah I reviewed them, I think I mixed up a discussion I had a while
ago with Jerome. It's a bit tricky to follow in the code since in some
places ->invalidate_range and ->invalidate_range_end seem to be called
from the same place, in others not at all.

Hm, sounds like a useful idea. Since in general you wont test with mmu
notifiers, but they could happen, and then they will block for at
least some mutex usually. I'll throw that as an idea on top for the
next round.
