Thanks for the work, Chris. I have a few of comments below.

How about "bh_lru_disable"?

Let's add why we want it in the description in bh_lru_install's description.

Instead of adding a new IPI there, how about adding need_bh_lru_drain(cpu)
in lru_add_drain_all and then calls invalidate_bh_lru in lru_add_drain_cpu?
Not a strong but looks like more harmonized with existing LRU draining
code.

Thanks for the work.
