    srcu is needed only for XPMEM to make the mmu notifier handlers
    sleepable. Ignore it for now, it can be done later. The locks you're
    changing are always taken _before_ the mmu notifier_range_start and
    always after the mmu_notifier_range_end, so srcu can be done later...

    It's orthogonal issue, but the moment these locks are sleepable it
    simply worth to switch mmu notifiers to srcu to accommodate XPMEM.
