Subject[patch 1/4] x86/paravirt: Dont patch flush_tlb_single
native_flush_tlb_single() is not just INLVPG anymore. With
X86_FEATURE_INVPCID_SINGLE and KAISER enabled it flushes also the shadow
mapping. But even with KAISER disabled flushing the particular ASID is the
right thing to do.

Remove the paravirt patching for it.

Fixes: 1fde25dc8ef4 ("x86/mm/kaiser: Use PCID feature to make user and kernel switches faster")
