Benjamin Herrenschmidt - July 24, 2009, 9:15 a.m.
That patch used to just add a hook to page table flushing but
pulling that string brought out a whole bunch of issues, so it
now does that and more:

 - We now make the RCU batching of page freeing SMP only, as I
believe it was intended initially. We make a few more things compile
to nothing on !CONFIG_SMP

 - Some macros are turned into functions, though that forced me to
out of line a few stuffs due to unsolvable include depenencies,
however it's probably better that way anyway, it's not -that-
critical code path.

 - 32-bit didn't call pte_free_finish() on tlb_flush() which means
that it wouldn't push out the batch to RCU for delayed freeing when
a bunch of page tables have been freed, they would just stay in there
until the batch gets full.

64-bit BookE will use that hook to maintain the virtually linear
page tables or the indirect entries in the TLB when using the
HW loader.
