Move the tlb flushing into free_pgtables. The conversion of the locks
taken for reverse map scanning would require taking sleeping locks
in free_pgtables(). Moving the tlb flushing into free_pgtables allows
sleeping in parts of free_pgtables().

This means that we do a tlb_finish_mmu() before freeing the page tables.
Strictly speaking there may not be the need to do another tlb flush after
freeing the tables. But its the only way to free a series of page table
pages from the tlb list. And we do not want to call into the page allocator
for performance reasons. Aim9 numbers look okay after this patch.
