Ok i see that the patch that add the reason why mmu notifier is
call have been drop. So yes using range_init in follow_pte_pmd
is fine. With that other patch the reasons is set by the caller
of follow_pte_pmd and using range_init would have overwritten
it.

So this patch is fine for current tree. Sorry i was thinking with
the other patch included in mind.

Cheers,
Jérôme
