There is no event defined by RISC-V that ever requires implementations flush
the TLB of more than one hart at a time. There is also nothing in the
normative text of the RISC-V manuals that allows for any differentiation
between multiple threads on a single core and multiple cores (though I am about
to suggest adding two, against my will :)).
