    It looks like sparc64 is the only user of this, so it is up to
    you Dave.

    I don't think I'd be able to decipher how sparc64 implements this.

    I think Hugh and I interpreted your message different ways.

    So, to make the question more concrete: if a pgd_t is freed due
    to freeing the single pmd_t contained within it (which was the
    only part of the pgd's address space that contained a valid mapping)
    Then do you need the full PGDIR_SIZE width passed to
    flush_tlb_pgtables, or just the PMD_SIZE'd start,end that covered
    the freed pmd_t?
