But you're still not doing a BBM, right? What prevents a speculative
access from using the (now freed) entry? The TLB invalidation you've
introduce just narrows the window where bad things can happen.

My gut feeling is that this series introduces more bugs than it fixes...
If you're going to fix it, please fix it by correctly implementing BBM
for huge mappings.

Or am I missing something terribly obvious?
