SubjectRe: [patch] cache flush bug in mm/filemap.c (all kernels >= 2.5.30(at least))

The point I don't like about update_mmu_cache() is that it's called
_after_ set_pte(). Practically it's maybe not a problem right now, but
the cache synchronization should happen before set_pte().

update_mmu_cache() is specifically supposed to always occur before
anyone could try to use the mapping created.

If this is ever violated, it will be fixed because it is a BUG().

So I don't see what you're worried about.

If the above were not true, sparc64 wouldn't be able to compile
a kernel successfully. :-)
