Subject[PATCH 4.4 26/63] x86/mm: Make flush_tlb_mm_range() more predictable
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit ce27374fabf553153c3f53efcaa9bfab9216bd8c upstream.

I'm about to rewrite the function almost completely, but first I
want to get a functional change out of the way. Currently, if
flush_tlb_mm_range() does not flush the local TLB at all, it will
never do individual page flushes on remote CPUs. This seems to be
an accident, and preserving it will be awkward. Let's change it
first so that any regressions in the rewrite will be easier to
bisect and so that the rewrite can attempt to change no visible
behavior at all.

The fix is simple: we can simply avoid short-circuiting the
calculation of base_pages_to_flush.

As a side effect, this also eliminates a potential corner case: if
tlb_single_page_flush_ceiling == TLB_FLUSH_ALL, flush_tlb_mm_range()
could have ended up flushing the entire address space one page at a
time.
