David Gibson - Oct. 27, 2009, 5:24 a.m.
Currently, hpte_need_flush() only correctly flushes the given address
for normal pages.  Callers for hugepages are required to mask the
address themselves.

But hpte_need_flush() already looks up the page sizes for its own
reasons, so this is a rather silly imposition on the callers.  This
patch alters it to mask based on the pagesize it has looked up itself,
and removes the awkward masking code in the hugepage caller.
