I have updated my mm patch set. The diff:

 - The tlb gather restart patch has been changed as discussed with Hugh.
 - The ptep_establish patch now really removes all traces of the call.
 - The mm_struct / vm_area_struct move to mm_types.h has been test
   compiled on a number of architectures.
 - The page_mkclean_one patch has been dropped because it doesn't seem
   to have any effect.
 - There is a new patch to fix a theoretical architectural problem on
   s390. The patch is required for the 1K/2K page tables for KVM as well.

While working on 1K/2K page tables for s390 I noticed room for
improvement in regard to some common mm code:
 - unnecessary tlb flushing in unmap_vmas
 - ptep_establish has fallen into disuse
 - ptep_test_and_clear_dirty / ptep_clear_flush_dirty are not used either
 - the definitions of mm_struct and vm_area_struct should be moved to
   mm_types.h
 - page_mkclean_one is giving false positives
