update_mmu_cache() does not appear to check the size of the translation
to be established in many architectures. e.g. on arch/ia64/ it does
flush_icache_range(addr, addr + PAGE_SIZE) unconditionally, and only
sets PG_arch_1 on a single struct page. Similar comments apply to
sparc64 and ppc64; I didn't check any others.
