    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.
