Subject[RFC/PATCH 3/12] Add MMF_DEAD flag to mm_struct being torn down
This adds a flag to mm_struct that is set when the mm is being
torn down. It's needed by my next patch disconnecting sparc64
tlb flushing from the mmu_gather in order to let the later
become a stack based structure. In general, that flag provides
the information that is in tlb->fullmm but more easily accessible
to all page table accessors.
