Subject[patch 6/6] mmu_notifier: Add invalidate_all()
when a task exits we can remove all external pts at once. At that point the
extern mmu may also unregister itself from the mmu notifier chain to avoid
future calls.

Note the complications because of RCU. Other processors may not see that the
notifier was unlinked until a quiescent period has passed!
