This confused me a bit. I thought we didn't support paravirtualized
flush_tlb_multi() from reading earlier in the series.

But, it seems like that might be Xen-only and doesn't apply to KVM and
paravirtualized KVM has no problem supporting flush_tlb_multi(). Is
that right? It might be good to include some of that background in the
changelog to set the context.
