Subject[RFC 17/20] mm/tlb: updated completed deferred TLB flush conditionally
Date
From: Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>

If all the deferred TLB flushes were completed, there is no need to
update the completed TLB flush. This update requires an atomic cmpxchg,
so we would like to skip it.

To do so, save for each mm the last TLB generation in which TLB flushes
were deferred. While saving this information requires another atomic
cmpxchg, assume that deferred TLB flushes are less frequent than TLB
flushes.
