Subject[PATCH] arm64: mm: Make flush_tlb_fix_spurious_fault() a no-op
Date
Our use of broadcast TLB maintenance means that spurious page-faults
that have been handled already by another CPU do not require additional
TLB maintenance.

Make flush_tlb_fix_spurious_fault() a no-op and rely on the existing TLB
invalidation instead. Add an explicit flush_tlb_page() when making a page
dirty, as the TLB is permitted to cache the old read-only entry.
