    Subject[PATCH 45/75] sparc: tsb must be flushed before tlb
    Date -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Dave Kleikamp <>

    commit 23a01138efe216f8084cfaa74b0b90dd4b097441 upstream.

    This fixes a race where a cpu may re-load a tlb from a stale tsb right
    after it has been flushed by a remote function call.

    I still see some instability when stressing the system with parallel
    kernel builds while creating memory pressure by writing to
    /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages, but this patch improves the stability
