Yeah more warning are better, people might start using this, i know
some poeple use unexported symbol and then report bugs while they
just were doing something illegal.

ptep_clear_flush_notify() is useless ... i have posted patches to either
restore it or remove it. In any case you must call mmu notifier range and
they can not happen under lock. You usage looked fine (in the next patch)
but i would rather have a bit of comment here to make sure people are also
aware of that.

While we can hope that people would cc mm when using mm function, it is
not always the case. So i rather be cautious and warn in comment as much
as possible.

Cheers,
Jérôme
