Subject[RFC 01/20] mm/tlb: fix fullmm semantics
Date
From: Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>

fullmm in mmu_gather is supposed to indicate that the mm is torn-down
(e.g., on process exit) and can therefore allow certain optimizations.
However, tlb_finish_mmu() sets fullmm, when in fact it want to say that
the TLB should be fully flushed.

Change tlb_finish_mmu() to set need_flush_all and check this flag in
tlb_flush_mmu_tlbonly() when deciding whether a flush is needed.
