Subject[PATCH 4.14 139/146] x86/smpboot: Remove stale TLB flush invocations
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit 322f8b8b340c824aef891342b0f5795d15e11562 upstream.

smpboot_setup_warm_reset_vector() and smpboot_restore_warm_reset_vector()
invoke local_flush_tlb() for no obvious reason.

Digging in history revealed that the original code in the 2.1 era added
those because the code manipulated a swapper_pg_dir pagetable entry. The
pagetable manipulation was removed long ago in the 2.3 timeframe, but the
TLB flush invocations stayed around forever.

Remove them along with the pointless pr_debug()s which come from the same 2.1
change.
