I don't much like this, and I think this is a step in the wrong
direction.

The idea is to extend the tlb_{remove,flush}_*() API to provide the
needed information to do TLB flushing. In fact, I think
tlb_remove_huge*() is already sufficient to set the VM_EXEC 'hint'. We
just don't have anything that covers the EXEC thing.

(also, I suspect the page_size crud we have also covers that)

Constructing a fake vma very much ensures arch tlb routines don't go
about and look at anything else either.

And you're also removing the useful information about arch tlb flush
functions.
