Subject: [PATCH 2/3] hugetlbfs: add missing TLB flush to hugetlb_cow()

From: Gerald Schaefer <gerald.schaefer@de.ibm.com>

A cow break on a hugetlbfs page with page_count > 1 will set a new pte
with set_huge_pte_at(), w/o any tlb flush operation. The old pte will
remain in the tlb and subsequent write access to the page will result
in a page fault loop, for as long as it may take until the tlb is
flushed from somewhere else.
This patch introduces an architecture-specific huge_ptep_clear_flush()
function, which is called before the the set_huge_pte_at() in
hugetlb_cow().
NOTE: This is just a nop on all architectures for now, there will be an
s390 implementation with our large page patch later. Other architectures
should define their own huge_ptep_clear_flush() if needed.
