This is a significant simplification, it eliminates all the remaining
'hmm' stuff in mm_struct, eliminates krefing along the critical notifier
paths, and takes away all the ugly locking and abuse of page_table_lock.
mmu_notifier_get() provides the single struct hmm per struct mm which
It also directly guarantees that no mmu_notifier op callback is callable
while concurrent free is possible, this eliminates all the krefs inside
the mmu_notifier callbacks.
The remaining krefs in the range code were overly cautious, drivers are
already not permitted to free the mirror while a range exists.
