My mistake, line 116(aka set_pte_at) flush ONLY cache (__update_cache)
instead of tlb, so it is ok that the we saw it since this is how page
swap in began with.

the CP0 EPC indicate a "cache 0x15 0x77e23000" trigger it, with my patch
applyed, the PTE is set young,

without my patch, go through the "else" branch with kmap*

-------------
else {
/*
* Use kmap_coherent or kmap_atomic to do flushes for
* another ASID than the current one.
*/
map_coherent = (cpu_has_dc_aliases &&
page_mapcount(page) &&
!Page_dcache_dirty(page));
if (map_coherent)
vaddr = kmap_coherent(page, addr);
else
vaddr = kmap_atomic(page);
addr = (unsigned long)vaddr;
}
--------------
Obviously, flush_cache_page with kmaped address would not cause TLB Invalid
Exception, while fulsh_cache_page with original address would cause TLB
invalid exception since the new PTE with V|Y set does not take effect in TLB


In short, the TLB is stale with SWAP entry and _PAGE_VALID clear.

+. with my patch, then flush_cache_page believe the _PAGE_VALID set in TLB
because it detect the PTE is young, so trigger the TLB Store Invalid exception.

+. without my patch, the flush_cache_page knew the PTE is old, so use
the kmapped address to flush cache, which is in accord with the page
copy before.

my fix to this is flush tlb, any idea?
