sparc: tsb must be flushed before tlb
upstream commit 23a01138efe216f8084cfaa74b0b90dd4b097441 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 significantly.
