I gave this a quick test on my arm64 machine and I see faults once
we hit userspace:

[    4.439714] Unhandled fault: TLB conflict abort (0x96000030) at 0xffff800391440090
[    4.447357] Internal error: : 96000030 [#1] SMP

I'll have to give this a closer look to see what's going on with the TLB flushing.

Thanks,
Laura
