So I can't say I'm a fan of this patch either, but I tried really hard
to get rid of it, I can't really come up with anything better, see
below.

I prefer __flush_tlb_kernel_one() -- given we already
flush_tlb_kernel_range().

So both __set_pte_vaddr() and __early_set_fixmap() are about setting up
fixmap and would need to flush world. But this seems to be mostly __init
code.

The kmmio one confuses me, I don't see how that is correct to just flush
the local CPU map.

tlb_uv appears to be about user mappings.

The rest is about pure kernel maps afaict.

(We don't support PCID && !PGE)

__flush_tlb_all() if PCID, because it needs to flush the thing from all
kernel ASIDs, which this patch -- however nasty -- achieves best.
