Marco was testing and got the stack trace below. The issue is that on x86,
flush_tlb_kernel_range uses on_each_cpu, which causes the WARN() below. Since
this is called from xpfo_kmap/unmap in this interrupt handler, the WARN()
triggers.

I'm not sure what to do about this -- based on the discussion in v6 we need to
flush the TLBs for all CPUs -- but we can't do that with interrupts disabled,
which basically means with this we wouldn't be able to map/unmap pages in
interrupts.

Any thoughts?

Tycho
