Subject[PATCH v9 10/15] ARM: LPAE: Invalidate the TLB before freeing the PMD
Similar to the PTE freeing, this patch introduced __pmd_free_tlb() which
invalidates the TLB before freeing a PMD page. This is needed because on
newer processors the entry in the upper page table may be cached by the
TLB and point to random data after the PMD has been freed.
