The alternative is something like:

struct unmap_batch {
struct cpumask cpumask;
unsigned long nr_pages;
unsigned long pfnsp[0];
};

#define BATCH_TLBFLUSH_SIZE ((PAGE_SIZE - sizeof(struct unmap_batch)) / sizeof(unsigned long))

and unconditionally allocate 1 page. This saves you from having to worry
about the layout of struct unmap_batch.
