Still when you touch the patch, then just move that around please :)

The crst_list is also used in gmap_alloc_table() coming from
__gmap_link() when touching the top level entries. To be fair there
shouldn't be asynchronous things that trigger a fault/link but we have
valid references to the gmap so at the very least I want a comment why
this is totally fine like we have for gmap_free().

Hrm, I'll need to brood over this a bit more, it has been too long.

Because we do gmap stuff and I don't want to pollute pv.c with memory
things if we don't have to.

Btw. s390_reset_acc() is also in gmap.c
