Is this going to be called by generic code?

It would be nice if we could drop 'kernel' into the name, to make it clear this
is intended to affect the kernel mappings, which have different maintenance
requirements to user mappings.

We should be able to implement this more simply as:

flush_tlb_kernel_page(unsigned long addr)
{
        flush_tlb_kernel_range(addr, addr + PAGE_SIZE);
}

Thanks,
Mark.
