Subject[PATCH 08/10] vmalloc: add un/map_kernel_range_noflush()
Date
Impact: two more public map/unmap functions

Implement map_kernel_range_noflush() and unmap_kernel_range_noflush().
These functions respectively map and unmap address range in kernel VM
area but doesn't do any vcache or tlb flushing. These will be used by
new percpu allocator.
