Nit, since we're messing with this, it can now be
"native_flush_tlb_multi()" since it is a function.

Should we just add the "reason" to flush_tlb_info?  It's OK-ish to imply
it like this, but seems like it would be nicer and easier to track down
the origins of these things if we did this at the caller.

Nit: the compiler will probably inline this sucker anyway.  So, for
these kinds of patches, I'd resist the urge to do these kinds of tweaks,
especially since it starts to hide the important change on the line.

I prefer brackets be added for 'if' blocks like this since it doesn't
take up any meaningful space and makes it less prone to compile errors.

This is logically a stack-local variable, right?  But, since we've got
preempt off and cpumasks can be huge, we don't want to allocate it on
the stack.  That might be worth a comment somewhere.

FWIW, it's probably worth calling out in the changelog that this loop
exists in on_each_cpu_cond_mask() too.  It looks bad here, but it's no
worse than what it replaces.

There was a __force on an earlier 'info' cast.  Could you talk about
that for a minute an explain why that one is needed?

Probably needs a comment for posterity above the if()^^:

	/* Use the optimized flush_tlb_multi() where we can. */

More comments, please.  Perhaps:

	Existing paravirt TLB flushes are incompatible with
	flush_tlb_multi() because....  Disable it when they are
	in use.
