You dont IMHO need to use such a large hammer. We already do similar sequences
for tlb invalidation on X86 for example. You can broadcast an interprocessor
interrupt and have the other processors set a flag each. You spin until they
are all captured, then when you clear the flag they all continue. You just
need to watch two processors doing it at the same time 8)
