my x86-64 implementation is marking the tlb entry global of course (so
it's not flushed during context switch):

#define MAKE_GLOBAL(x) __pgprot((x) | _PAGE_GLOBAL)

static void __init map_vsyscall(void)
extern char __vsyscall_0;
unsigned long physaddr_page0 = (unsigned long) &__vsyscall_0 - __START_KERNEL_map;

__set_fixmap(VSYSCALL_FIRST_PAGE, physaddr_page0, PAGE_KERNEL_VSYSCALL);
