Subject[PATCH v7 1/6] mm: rmap: fix cache flush on THP pages
The flush_cache_page() only remove a PAGE_SIZE sized range from the cache.
However, it does not cover the full pages in a THP except a head page.
Replace it with flush_cache_range() to fix this issue. At least, no
problems were found due to this. Maybe because the architectures that
have virtual indexed caches is less.

Fixes: f27176cfc363 ("mm: convert page_mkclean_one() to use page_vma_mapped_walk()")
