mmdrop() might sleep, but

/*
* smp_call_function_single - Run a function on a specific CPU
* @func: The function to run. This must be fast and non-blocking.
* @info: An arbitrary pointer to pass to the function.
* @wait: If true, wait until function has completed on other CPUs.
*
* Returns 0 on success, else a negative status code.
*/

. Maybe mmdrop_async() instead?
