SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86/paravirt: merge activate_mm and dup_mmap callbacks

I was expecting that the duplicated functions xen_activate_mm() and
xen_dup_mmap() would be merged into a common one, and that both
.mmu.activate_mm and .mmu.dup_mmap callbacks would be mapped to that
common implementation for Xen PV.

Instead, this patch seems to be merging the callbacks themselves...

I see that's not an issue right now since there is no other actual
user for these callbacks. But are we sure that merging the callbacks
just because the current user (Xen PV) has the same implementation for
both is a good idea? The callbacks are invoked at distinct points from
fork/exec, so wouldn't it be valuable to retain that distinction in
semantics in the callbacks as well?

However, if you believe that two separate callbacks are not really
required here (because there is no significant difference in what they
mean, rather than because their callback implementations happen to be
the same right now), then could you please expand on this and call it
out in the commit message, please?

Thank you!
