    SubjectSuspend 2 merge: 13/51: Disable highmem tlb flush for copyback.
    When we're making/restoring our atomic copy of the image, secondary
    processors are frozen. Trying an SMP call at that time could thus lead
    to deadlock. Secondary processors have their tlbs unconditionally
    flushed when leaving the processor refrigerator, so this doesn't come
    back to bite us.
