This matches other architectures, when we know there will be no
further accesses to the address (e.g., for teardown), page table
entries can be cleared non-atomically.

The comments about NMMU are bogus, all MMU notifiers (including NMMU)
are released at this point, with their TLBs flushed. An NMMU access
at this point would be a bug.
