here is a small patch-set to sync unmappings in the
vmalloc/ioremap areas between page-tables in the system.

This is only needed x86-32 with !SHARED_KERNEL_PMD, which is
the case on a PAE kernel with PTI enabled.

On affected systems the missing sync causes old mappings to
persist in some page-tables, causing data corruption and
other undefined behavior.

Please review.
