asm-generic/tlb: provide MMU_GATHER_TABLE_FREE
As described in the comment, the correct order for freeing pages is: 1) unhook page 2) TLB invalidate page 3) free page This order equally applies to page directories. Currently there are two correct options: - use tlb_remove_page(), when all page directores are full pages and there are no futher contraints placed by things like software walkers (HAVE_FAST_GUP). - use MMU_GATHER_RCU_TABLE_FREE and tlb_remove_table() when the architecture does not do IPI based TLB invalidate and has HAVE_FAST_GUP (or software TLB fill). This however leaves architectures that don't have page based directories but don't need RCU in a bind. For those, provide MMU_GATHER_TABLE_FREE, which provides the independent batching for directories without the additional RCU freeing.
