SubjectRe: [PATCH] flush_cache_page while pte valid
   From: Hugh Dickins <>

Thanks for shedding light on that; but I'm still wondering if there
might be data loss if userspace modifies the page in the tiny window
between correctly positioned flush_cache_page and pte invalidation?

The flush merely writes back the data, a copy-back operation, fully L2
cache coherent. All cpus will see correct data if an intermittant
store occurs.
