There exists two conditions:
1. The address is accessed for the first time, there will be one tlb entry with normal page
size, and privilege for the tlb entry is none. If new tlb entry wants to be added with
huge page size, the older tlb entry needs to be removed. Local flushing is enough, if there
are smp threads running, there will be page fault handing since privilege level is none. During
page fault handling, the other threads will do the same work, flush local entry, update new entry
with huge page size.

2. It is not accessed by the first time, there exists old tlb entry with huge page such as COW scenery.
local_flush_tlb_page is not necessary here, old tlb with huge page will be replace with new tlb
in function __update_tlb.

For PMD_SIZE range around the address, there exists one tlb entry with huge page size, or one tlb entry
with normal page size and zero privilege. It is impossible that there exists two or more tlb entries
with normal page within PMD_SIZE range, so we do not need flush pmd range size, just flush one tlb entry
is ok.
