[This series is RFC because I don't have MIPS to compile and test]

kvm_flush_remote_tlbs() can be arch-specific, by either:

- Completely replace kvm_flush_remote_tlbs(), like ARM, who is the
  only user of CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_ARCH_TLB_FLUSH_ALL so far

- Doing something extra before kvm_flush_remote_tlbs(), like MIPS VZ
  support, however still wants to have the common tlb flush to be part
  of the process.  Could refer to kvm_vz_flush_shadow_all().  Then in
  MIPS it's awkward to flush remote TLBs: we'll need to call the mips
  hooks.

It's awkward to have different ways to specialize this procedure,
especially MIPS cannot use the genenal interface which is quite a
pity.  It's good to make it a common interface.

This patch series removes the 2nd MIPS usage above, and let it also
use the common kvm_flush_remote_tlbs() interface.  It should be
suggested that we always keep kvm_flush_remote_tlbs() be a common
entrance for tlb flushing on all archs.

This idea comes from the reading of Sean's patchset on dynamic memslot
allocation, where a new dirty log specific hook is added for flushing
TLBs only for the MIPS code [1].  With this patchset, logically the
new hook in that patch can be dropped so we can directly use
kvm_flush_remote_tlbs().

TODO: We can even extend another common interface for ranged TLB, but
let's see how we think about this series first.

Any comment is welcomed, thanks.

Peter Xu (4):
  KVM: Provide kvm_flush_remote_tlbs_common()
  KVM: MIPS: Drop flush_shadow_memslot() callback
  KVM: MIPS: Replace all the kvm_flush_remote_tlbs() references
  KVM: MIPS: Define arch-specific kvm_flush_remote_tlbs()
