SubjectRe: [RFC, PATCH] TLB flush changes for S/390
   From: Ulrich Weigand <weigand@immd1.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

* Is there some reason why ptep_test_and_clear_young should
*not*, after all, flush the TLB?

Yes, because the accuracy of that state bit is not required to
be %100 perfect. Less SMP tlb flushing traffic from vmscan
runs is desirable, thus no flush.
